Warm and Soothing

My family loved this Thai-Style Pumpkin Soup. We have enjoyed Libby's Pumpkin Pie for years as well as pumpkin muffins. So, we decided to try the soup and the flavors in it were soooo soothing! Please try this, it is now a TOP list soup for us!

Thai-Style Pumpkin Soup

We were very pleased not only with the unique taste, but how easy it was to make. The prep time was very low. We will definitely make this again, but will add more than 1/2 t red pepper flakes as we like it a little spicier.

Thai Pumpkin Soup

My daughter and I enjoyed this soup last weekend. My husband was not very fond of the soup. We added a slices of fresh ginger root for extra zing. Thanks for sharing the original recipe. We are big fans of the recipe sharing.

unusual & delicious

This soup made such a hit with guests that I keep the ingredients on hand. It's quick to make, looks and tastes delicious, and, if you need more reasons to try it, is a great source of beta carotene.
