This recipe for the curried pumpkin soup is so fall! If you’ve loved chicken coconut curry soup in the past, I think you will love my autumnal version. There is no traditional hot pepper, or lemongrass, instead some smoked paprika and pumpkin puree.
The curried pumpkin mixes perfectly with the coconut milk and smokey paprika to create an absolutely delicious fall soup. Squash makes it a bit hardier, you could serve this soup as a main dish with some rice or cauliflower rice on the side for a full meal.
This is a very simple soup that only takes about 30 minutes to cook start to finish. I choose to use chicken thighs because I find them more flavorful and moist. That’s a personal preference, but it is how the recipe was tested. I am fairly certain you could use chicken tenders or chicken breast if that is what you prefer or have on hand.
Let’s get cooking!
