Now I’ll just start by saying that I know next to nothing about Thai food.  So don’t tell me this soup is inauthentic – I know that.  Or maybe it is authentic.  I have no idea.

What I do know is that this Thai pumpkin soup is fantastic.  After having it for either lunch or supper (or both) for 3 days in a row, I was still rather sad when it was all gone.

It does have some Thai red curry paste in it, so I figure I can call this Thai soup because of that.  Right?

This Thai pumpkin soup is a little bit spicy but not so much your mouth is on fire, and a bit creamy (but not really because it’s coconut milk, not cream in it).  It is super easy to throw together which makes it the perfect light meal for those cold fall nights.

My whole family enjoys this Thai pumpkin soup.  Even the kids – although they prefer theirs without the cilantro!

If you’ve never tried pumpkin soup, you should probably make this version happen sometime soon – it’s the perfect fall meal!

      Thanks Medha! The bowls actually belonged to my husband’s Grandma, they’re meant for french onion soup (which I need to make!) and I love them. So pretty and such a great size too. Thanks for pinning!

      Hope you enjoy it Manali! Actually this is what we had your naan bread with and it was fantastic! 🙂 My husband didn’t even complain about the lack of meat which is definitely something! 🙂

    1. stacey says:

      That’s what I figured – curry paste and coconut milk – it’s gotta be close enough right?! Thanks so much Ashlyn!

    1. stacey says:

      I love using the slow cooker for soup – so easy to throw it in whenever I have a minute! We really liked this one, definitely going to be making it again soon! Thanks Alyssa!

      1. Sara says:

        Just wondering if you think it would work if I made this the night before an event, then put it on high for 30 minutes before serving the next day….would that affect the coconut milk?

        1. stacey says:

          Hi Sara – I think it would probably be fine, as we did reheat the leftovers in the microwave the next day with no problem at all. You could also just add the ingredients in the last step and then skip the cooking on low for 30 minutes part before refrigerating it for the next day. Then you wouldn’t be cooking the coconut milk for any longer then usual by heating it up the next day before serving it.

  4. I don’t know much about thai food either, except that I like it! This pumpkin soup sounds perfect, Stacey! I love the thai flare and the fact that it’s made in the slow cooker. I bet your house smelled amazing when this was simmering!
