4-Ingredient Thai pumpkin soup that tastes like dessert

Categories: Recipes
This soup from Sanne Leenman basically tastes like dessert. Seriously. It’s simple to make and in 15 minutes you can prep huge batches of it at once. You can also use frozen or canned pumpkin and it’ll still be super tasty. Very few recipes are this satiating, nutritious and tasty at the same time. Almost all of our clients that tried it liked it. Give it a try!

  • 1 kg – 2.2 lbs Pumpkin
  • 200 ml – 6.8 fl oz Coconut milk (see macros for both light and version with fat)
  • 2 tbspn Thai red curry paste
  • Chicken stock cube or salt to taste.

1. Add the pumpkin cubes to a large soup pot. Add water to submerge the pumpkin and cook it until the pumpkin cubes are tender.

2. Drain the pumpkin, but keep 50-75% of the water in the pot. If you like your soup very thick, keep only a bit of water. If you like it thin, keep more. Play it on the safe side, you can always add more water at the end.

3. Add the Thai red curry paste, coconut milk and chicken stock cube.

4. With a (stick) blender, blend the soup until creamy and smooth.

5. Serve directly or store for later use.

6. Optional: add a bit of sucralose sweetener to taste if you like it extra sweet.
