Pumpkin goes exotic…

Even though there’s only six ingredients, this Thai pumpkin soup is surprisingly flavor-filled and spicy. It’s quite different from other pumpkin soup recipes, less “fall in a bowl” and more exotic, fragrant, and sweet. It’s a surprising twist from the first bite. Red curry paste and coconut drive the exotic taste, while cayenne pepper provides the undertone of heat. It’s not an overwhelming heat – the soup is balanced to be well-spiced, not just spicy. But feel free to ramp up that cayenne if you prefer.

Perhaps best of all – this soup whips up fast. Real fast. You can go from prep to plate in 15 minutes or less. If you’re looking for a soup that’s memorable but can be pulled together in a pinch, few are better than Thai pumpkin soup.

Pumpkin and its earthy sweetness pairs really well with chili peppers. Soup is a great way to experience it, and we have many options in our spicy recipe index. For instance, try this this smoky ancho take or a version with a Moroccan twist. But don’t stop there. Spicy pumpkin bread is just pure yum. And if you’re looking for a dessert to showcase during the holidays a cayenne-spiced pumpkin pie is a bold take.
