Nina's Thai Coconut-Pumpkin Soup
A good way to change up pumpkin soup! Great for those who like a good bit of spice but can be adjusted to taste. Even my boyfriend who does not like pumpkin enjoyed this one! Depending on the level of heat you want, you can increase or decrease the amount of heat in the dish.
Chicken stock may be used in place of water, if desired.
You can also use a food processor to puree the soup. Fill the food processor halfway with soup. Cover and hold the lid down with a potholder; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Pour into a pot. Repeat with remaining soup.
