Thai Spiced Pumpkin Soup (Served in Pumpkins!)

Ever since the start of “Fall”, I’ve been craving a nice warm pumpkin soup served in a cute lil’ pumpkin!

But I wanted to spice it up a little different since my husband dreads anything pumpkin. ( I know…)

So I added some curry season, creamy coconut milk, and a little sweetness from a sweet potato. He actually really like it! Until he added one too many dashes of Franks Hot sauce and RUINED it.

He seems to think that Franks Hot sauce goes on EVERYTHING. I mean, it’s not like they market the product saying  it goes on EV.RY.THANG.

 

Or do they?

Don’t answer.

He also doesn’t like dessert, Real Housewives, or the color turquoise. (Which, I want to paint my whole house and every piece of furniture.) WHAT’S WRONG WITH HIM?! Not that much really…He’s adorable. But really? Who hates turquoise?

Now…About that Thai Spiced Pumpkin Soup…

My dream is to one day hold a fabulous Thanksgiving Dinner at my house where I serve this soup in mini pumpkins and everyone says “Ooooh” and “Aaahhh”…

Then drizzle it with a yummy coconut milk and some crunchy roasted pumpkin seeds! It’s the perfect crouton for this soup!

I promise my next recipe won’t be pumpkin based…I think? Otherwise my husband might, well…Put Franks Hot Sauce on Pumpkin Pie.

Not ok…

  1. This is the best pumpkin recipe I have seen this season!! 🙂 I’m with you on turquoise…maybe you can tell him that he can be in charge of decorating the garage. You’ve got the rest of the house!

    • You are so sweet Maureen! Thank you!
      I told him he could do anything he wanted with the garage, but I think one day he might just come home and find…turquoise :)! haha

  2. Love it! This soup looks so easy, yet stick it in a pumpkin and it’s fancy! Right?! I’ll bet those flavors are outstanding, too.

  3. What an adorable (and delicious idea!) What a great soup recipe and I bet it’s sooo much easier to get the kids to try it when it looks SO fun and festive! Gotta try this!
