Now that the weather has started getting colder, it feels like the perfect time to get back into making soup!
Our vegie garden is overflowing with pumpkins at the moment, so a big batch of pumpkin soup was just the ticket!
I really felt like a pumpkin soup with a thai flair (lemongrass, ginger, garlic etc), but didn’t have any fresh lemongrass at home and was in a bit of a rush anyway! So… i took the cheats (or as I like to think of it …. the smart persons) way out and used a few tablespoons of ‘Gourmet Garden Thai Seasoning’ from the fruit and vegie section of the supermarket. Anyway, it turned out great – you seriously could not tell the flavouring was from a tube!! Now I’m wondering why I have gone to all the effort of using fresh lemongrass, coriander and ginger in the past!
It was a super easy thai pumpkin soup that really just involved roasting the pumpkin, frying a bit of onion, adding the thai seasoning and some water and then blending it all together. Easy peasy! The chilli gave it a kick and was nice and warming on a cold night!
Now it’s time to start thinking of the next soup to make… I’m thinking chicken and corn or maybe a minestrone?
What’s your favourite soup?
