Red Curry Pumpkin Soup

Red Curry Pumpkin Soup

Here is another pumpkin recipe I've made this week! I told you I would be making a few pumpkin recipes to use up my homemade Pumpkin Puree.

This was delicious! I love the strong garlic flavor along with the red curry and coconut! I think the toasted pumpkin seeds and crouton topping is a must, so please don't leave those out! This would also be great with a small dollop of sour cream!

I found this recipe on the Bed Bath & Beyond blog! I love shopping in their store but I didn't know they had a blog, let alone recipes! I really need to get out more!

I made their recipe as written except I added some fresh garlic paste and omitted the water. I think the water would just dilute the soup way too much.

15 oz. canned pumpkin or homemade pumpkin puree (not canned pumpkin pie filling)
2 Tbls. red curry paste
1 clove garlic made into a paste by mashing it with a pinch of kosher salt.
2 cups coconut milk - I used lite
4 Tbls. dried, pumpkin seeds - shells removed
1 tsp olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup croutons - I used butter/garlic flavored


In a medium sized sauce pan over medium heat, simmer the pumpkin, red curry paste, garlic paste and coconut milk for a few minutes, stirring often.
Season to taste with salt & pepper.
Then turn heat to very low to keep the soup warm.
Meanwhile, in a small non-stick pan, add oil on medium/high heat. Add the pumpkin seeds cooking and stirring until lightly toasted.
Serve each bowl of soup warm, topped with the toasted pumpkin seeds and croutons.
Makes 2 bowls.


  1. This looks fantastic! I have never used red curry, but I am game to try it with this soup!

    1. Hi Kelli! Pumpkin is so bland on its own, so the red curry and extra garlic really boost up the flavor! And the hint of coconut is a yummer! So many layers of flavor in this easy soup! I hope you'll try it! =D
