Pumpkin Soup

Just like my easy tomato soup, this pumpkin soup recipe was inspired by my strong desire, just before lunch this weekend, to avoid chopping, sautéing and pureeing. I wanted to just throw a few things in the stockpot, cook to allow the flavors to meld, and enjoy. I also knew that I wanted my pumpkin soup to have Thai-inspired flavors.

We all loved the result – a light, creamy, mildly spicy and very flavorful pumpkin soup. In fact, I got an immediate request to add pumpkin puree and coconut milk to my shopping list, to ensure that I make this soup again very soon!
