Try this unique spin on pumpkin soup that will leave you saying “wow”.
Pumpkin Schmumpkin; this one's different
Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin. Tis the season.
Full disclosure: I don’t really like pumpkin.
I think it’s bland and pretty boring.
You’ve really gotta spice it up to win me over.
But we run a vegan Vitamix recipes blog and it would be pretty silly to not have a pumpkin soup recipe.
It would also be really silly to recommend boring and bland soup.
So I made something we all can appreciate: This Thai Pumpkin Soup!
I roasted up a pumpkin. That’s the hard part.
Then added coconut, lime, turmeric, ginger and red pepper flakes.
Now we’ve got a soup!
This dish is anything but boring. It’s incredibly flavorful, rich, and hits you with a little kick.
It is not what I think of when someone says “pumpkin soup” and that’s why I love it.
Make a batch of this Thai Pumpkin Soup for all the people in your life who are indifferent to pumpkin. You may change their minds and convert them from being autumn scrooges (like me). 🙂
