Thai Pumpkin Soup Recipe

Food & Drink /

Soup! Soup! Glorious soup! I don’t know why but that song has been buzzing around in my head as I write this blog post, and the smell of pumpkin soup is wafting through the air. I love pumpkin soup, always, but when you take it up a notch and add in a little Thai flavour it really turns into something special.

This one is great to make a freeze and bring out for easy dinners or yummy lunches. I’ve calculated the Weight Watchers SmartPoints too, for those into that, because that’s what I’m doing and it’s a really good one for low SmartPoints but lotsa flavour.
