Happiness is Homemade Pumpkin Coconut Soup

Yesterday, I cranked the air up. Today, I am wrapped in blankets playing the "is it time to turn the heat on yet?" game. Mother Nature is so fickle this time of year, isn't she? For days like today, hot tea and soup are my bff. I usually save myself a bowl of leftover soup in the fridge from dinner to eat for lunch during the week, but I didn't have any in there today to warm my bones. What I did have was some canned pumpkin leftover from my brioche bread pudding I featured earlier this week, so I decided to use it up in this homemade Pumpkin Coconut Soup recipe from Golden Blossom Honey. 

Pumpkin Coconut Soup

It's a creamy soup, but not heavy since it doesn't include heavy whipping cream, but coconut milk instead. I had some French bread that was getting a bit old, so I cubed it up and tossed it into the oven for some homemade croutons, which paired wonderfully with the soup. I love bread, so I am a sucker for any kind of soup that I can put croutons in. It just makes the soup that much yummier, don't you think? With Thanksgiving just over a month away, this would be a great addition to your holiday menu. It's a lovely seasonal recipe that pairs well with all of the holiday trimmings. 

Ingredients
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup onion, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 (29 ounce) can pure pumpkin, not pie filling
1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth
2 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
dash ground ginger
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

  2. Oh man.. yes I saw some baguettes on sale and was tempted to buy but didn't since we don't usually eat white bread and didn't know what to do with it. Now I really should have bought it to have some pumpkin soup!! I haven't had it for ages and now you're making me crave it haha

    1. We've cut out the white bread too for the most part, but I will buy a baguette once in a blue moon for croutons or bread pudding.

  3. What a gorgeous colour combo, deary, with those cute dishes and those orange pumpkins!
    Not sure I'd eat it, I don't do coconut in savoury dishes, but it does look fragrant and warm!
    We're still enjoying warm weather with windows opened all day, it's Indian Summer here even though we have no Indians :)

    1. My heat went on today and Mariah even said it snowed at her college today :( Thankfully, it didn't come up here, so all we got was cold and rain. This crap better go away before next weekend as I am treating my mama to a concert for her birthday and it's outdoors. Nothing would be worse than standing out in the rain or snow for several hours listening to music.

  4. Sure the perfect color for the season indeed. Haven't had soup in decades, big surprise huh?, but the weather sure is fickle here too.

  10. The coconut milk is the one ingredient that will make this soup really flavorful. I am going to add this to our meal plan and pinning the recipe in my pinterest soup recipes board.
