You guys. My kitchen right now is where you need to be. It smells absolutely amazing thanks to my new pot of comfort. Coconut curry pumpkin soup.
This pumpkin soup is probably one of the easiest soups I have ever made. It only takes a handful of ingredients and minimal prep. Less than 30 minutes of simmer time later (yes 30 minutes!), it is ready to serve. Plus, if you chop those onions finely enough, you can skip pureeing the soup at the end as it should already be smooth enough as is. Any reason to not have to bring out my heavy food processor is a win for me!
This soup makes a great appetizer to your holiday dinner, or as a main course on it’s own on a cold fall or winter night. It will instantly warm you right up. Plus, you can’t go wrong with pumpkin and all the amazing health benefits that come along with it! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, these are a few of the reasons why I consume a plethora of pumpkin recipes every fall:
- boosts immunity
- burns fat
- protects your eyes
- cancer fighting
- beneficial for your heart
- reduces inflammation
