 Amazing Soup - Thai Carrot Pumpkin

Tried this soup this past week and it was absolutely amazing and will definitely be making it again.

http://www.seasonsandsuppers.ca/2011/02/thai_curry_carrot_and_pumpkin_soup.php

Ingredients:

2 cups carrots, peeled and diced
1 1/2 cups cubed pumpkin or a small 14oz. can of pumpkin (not pie filling)
1 can coconut milk (light or regular)
4 cups chicken stock
1 Tbsp. green Thai curry paste
2 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp. freshly grated ginger
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. cumin
1 oz. shredded coconut, about 1/4 cup

In a large pot, sweat carrots and pumpkin on medium heat for 10 minutes (**if using canned pumpkin, just sweat the carrots and reserve pumpkin puree for later)

Add garlic, Thai curry, salt, pepper, cumin and ginger. Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Add chicken stock, canned pumpkin (if using), coconut milk and coconut (if using).

Cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 35 minutes or until carrots are cooked.

If you prefer a perfectly smooth soup, puree with an immersion blender or in small batches in a blender. I like it with a bit of texture so I usually just mash it a bit with a potato masher.

Taste, and season with more salt and pepper, if necessary.

------------------------------------------------------------

My modifications:

I used canned pumpkin - had to use half a can since I could only find a large can, however if I knew how good this soup would be I would have doubled the recipe right off the bat and used the whole can!

I used red curry paste - since I had a jar on the go in my fridge and didn't feel like buying green curry paste. May have made the soup slightly spicier than the original recipe but was still very mild and my 1 year old and 10 year old both loved it and they don't do spicy.


I garnished with a bit of chopped cilantro.

The recipe I have for this uses red curry paste rather than the green. It also calls for less as the red is a hotter paste then the green.
