I thought this soup was wonderful but i did make a few additions. I added carrots and garlic to the sauteed leeks/onions. It was kinda bland so I added about 1 teaspoon of red curry paste..the curry with the coconut milk and pumpkin- so good!Next time I'm going to add basmati rice as well. This is a nice fall soup and super easy!
good basic soup but need seasoning.I added Cumin and Tumeric and red pepper flakes for a bit of zing.It is very filling and I made it in the slow cooker and also homemade cheese bread.and I also switched cocnut milk for cream(about 1/2 C) the second time and I found this better.
This was really good - exceeded expectations. From a nutrition point of view it was excellent. The pumpkin (I used butternut squash)and sweet potato has a low G.I. and the servings are low in fat. My family ate a delicious low fat, vegetarian, high in vitamin and mineral soup with a lower glycemic index. Definitely a keeper. Thank you!
I didn't have leeks when I made this, but even without them it was a wonderful soup! The coconut milk really makes it. I find that it helps to add some of your own spices. I added some fresh ginger, some curry powder and a touch of chili peppers to the salt and pepper suggested.
Oh wow! I just ate a huge bowl of this soup over some rice. I added curry powder and ginger, as suggested, along with a clove of garlic. What a wonderful, quick, easy meal idea. I'm going to try adding chicken next time.
An amazing soup! But I like it hot. I mixed in some red thai curry paste to offset the sweetness from the coconut milk.
This is delicious, healthy comfort food. I added zuchini, peeled turnips, and used canned pumpkin puree instead of fresh. Also went with the suggestion of more spices, and tried nutmeg, allspice, ginger and curry. No need to puree, just mushed the veggies a little, and enjoyed it a bit chunky.
I love the idea of this soup, but it needs just a little something to give it some oomph--I'm thinking fresh sage, which I'll try next time. I used butternut squash because there is no fresh pumpkin this time of year, so the soup was a touch sweeter than it might otherwise have been. I'll definitely make this again.
