• 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 yellow onion, finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp. Red Thai Curry
  • 1 Tbsp. fish sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  • 2-15 oz. cans pumpkin puree
  • 6 cups vegetable (or chicken) stock
  • 2 to 3 makrut lime leaves
  • 1-14 oz. can coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh minced cilantro


Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 to 6 min. In a small bowl, mix together curry, fish sauce and water to make a paste. Stir paste into onions and cook for 1 min. or until fragrant. Add pumpkin puree and stir until combined. Add stock and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, add lime leaves, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 min. Add coconut milk and simmer for 10 more min. Remove lime leaves before serving.

Serving Suggestions

Top with cilantro and a dash of fish sauce, if desired. Make the soup a little heartier by serving it over cooked white or brown rice.

I used to despise pumpkin but this recipe has definitely changed my mind. I absolutely love this recipe. I did use a little less broth to make it a bit thicker and creamier. I'll be making this again. It's super easy and a crowd pleaser!
