Sunday Soup: Thai Pumpkin (v)

Serves: 6 | Prep Time: 15 mins | Cook Time: 30 mins



If you're looking for something a bit thicker, filling and with a bit of a kick? This Thai pumpkin soup will satisfy all your cravings, maybe even that awkward cold you may or may not have from this very confusing weather we've been having recently.



Pair it with a good ol' freshly baked crusty bread roll and/or a side salad and you've got yourself a dinner dish right there, or if you're looking for something light for lunch, having it on it's own is just as good.

We actually made the amount that serves 6, so it lasted us a few days with freezing it. Easy and perfect way to save money and meal plan.

PS - How cute is the little keychain of sriracha sauce?


Ingredients:

1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion, peeled and chopped
- 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, peeled and minced
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
- 2 tbsp red thai paste
- 3lbs pumpkin or butternut squash, peeled, deseeded and chopped
- 1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped
- 3 1/2 cups hot vegetable stock
- 14oz can coconut milk (full fat)
- 1 tsp fish sauce

To serve:
- 2 tbsp sriracha or other chilli sauce
- 1 fresh red chili, finely sliced


Instructions:

1.  Heat the oil in a large pan and place the onion in the pan. Cook for 5-6 minutes on a medium heat until the onion has softened. Add in the ginger, garlic and thai paste and cook for a further minute, then add in the squash and sweet potato and stir until everything is lightly coated in the paste.

2. Add in the stock and coconut milk and bring to a gently bubble, then simmer for 20 minutes.

3. Stir in the fish sauce, lime juice, salt and pepper, then turn off the heat. Carefully blend with a stick blender, then ladle into bowls. Swirl in a little cream and chilli sauce, then top with some chopped red chiles.
