"Found @ bbcgoodfooddotcom, this recipe by James Martin asks you to "Make the most of autumn's harvest w/this warming, seasonal soup from Thailand." AND they don't need to ask me twice. Pumpkin is 1 of my most-favored ingredients, is easily available here in Iceland & (just like in the US) is also a big part of our annual 3-family Thanksgiving dinner. I admit that I modified the recipe to switch from fresh pumpkin that was oven roasted to canned pumpkin, mainly because canned product is available here while fresh is not. I believe that convenience products have their place in our kitchens & this change shortened the cook time & made the recipe a good deal more "cook-friendly". ENJOY!"
Put the vegetable oil in a pan w/the onion, ginger & lemongrass. Gently cook for 8-10 mins until softened.
Stir in the curry paste for 1 min, followed by the canned pumpkin, all but 3 tbsp of the coconut milk & the stock.
Bring to a simmer, cook for 5 mins & then fish out the lemongrass. Cool for several mins. Then whizz w/a hand-held stick blender. Return to the pan to reheat the soup & season w/salt, pepper, lime juice & sugar as desired.
Serve drizzled w/the remaining coconut milk (1/2 tbsp per serving) & scattered w/thin slices of the red chilli as desired.
There is nothing quite like the smells and memories of fresh baked cookies. Serve them...

Great recipe and very easy. This soup is really quite filling. I think some prawns or chicken added would work well if you wanted.
We lived in Burma (Myanmar) for several years and made frequent trips to neighbouring Thailand. This soup is spot-on for the Thai pumpkin soup. Unlike Twissis, I made half a batch of this using fresh pumpkin because that's what I can buy in Australia. I sautéed the pumpkin with the onion etc, and then made the rest of the recipe as written. That said, I didn't completely purée the soup because we like a bit of body. Plus I added a sprinkling of fresh coriander (cilantro). Wonderful colours.
