Pumpkin and Coconut Soup

Pumpkin and Coconut Soup

Pumpkins and squashes are coming in thick and fast at the moment, both from my Mother in Laws allotment and also the weekly veg box. One of the larger pumpkins went into making this warming autumn soup, in preparation for the colder weather that's coming our way, according to the Countryfile weather forecast last night.

I used a pouch of Thai Taste Coconut Milk to give the soup a creamy silky texture the chilli's and roasted garlic gave it a lovely fragrant taste.

  2. Great combination of flavours. Pumpkins are good, of course, but there's something about roasted garlic and chilli that makes colder nights a little more bearable. And then coconut to cheer me up as well.

  6. Coconut milk works well in pumpkin soup! I also like to add a hit of Thai curry paste to the mix.
