Thai Coconut Pumpkin Soup

Good morning! How is your week going? I am excited because I saw my first Christmas commercial this week and on the radio they will begin playing Christmas music today! I know it is a little early but frankly I love it. The month of December is such a blur for me that I always feel like I "miss" Christmas, this way I can enjoy a part of it early. 

I don't know about you but in the fall soup is one of my favorite foods and if it is easy to make even better. I found this recipe for Thai coconut pumpkin soup on Pinterest boards and have since made it twice because it is so good and super easy. 

Thai Coconut Pumpkin Soup
Recipe adapted from Just a Taste Blog

1 Tablespoon butter
1 medium onion diced
4 cloves of garlic minced
1 teaspoon yellow curry
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cumin
28 oz can of pumpkin puree(not pie mix)
21/2 cups chicken stock
1(13.5) can of lite & unsweetened coconut milk
Garnish sour cream pumpkin seeds


Add butter to a meduim saute pan set over medium heat. One butter has melted, add the onions garlic, turmeric, curry and cumin and cook stirring the mixture occasionally until the unions are translucent. Transfer the mixture to a blender. Add the pumpkin purée and chicken stock to the blender and blend until combined. Pour the soup into a large stock pot set over medium heat then whisk in the coconut milk. Cook the soup, stirring occasionally, until it is warmed throughout. Season it with salt and pepper. Divide the soup into bowls and garnish with sour cream and chopped pumpkin seeds.

Are you a fan of pumpkin soup? If not what is your favorite Fall or Winter soup or stew? Please share and if you have posted about it add your link as well. I would love to try a new recipe or two. 

Have a great day!


  1. NOW I know how I can use tumeric. I have some in my cupboard, I know it's good for you, and I tried it a few times in chicken dishes but did not like it. However, I think this is where it would go best, combined with pumpkin in soup! YES YES! Hello dearest Elizabeth! Loving the season?

  2. I make pumpkin or squash soup all the time. It's easy to start with a base and then tweak it for different flavors. Sometimes I do classic French, with sauteed onions, then the squash, and finished with a filet of cream. Sometimes I do Thai with coconut milk and lemongrass, or Indian with curry. I am eager to try your recipe. Variety is the spice of life!

  3. This looks positively yummy. I love anything pumpkin!

  4. Actually I've never tasted pumpkin soup. But this looks so delicious!

  5. THANK YOU!! This is exactly what I am craving!!

  6. This looks fabulous - bookmarking to try!! xoxo
