This soup holds such a special place in my heart and my kitchen! My mom in law Carole made this as part of Thanksgiving dinner on the first holiday we all spent together when my husband Josh and I were dating. I loved it so much I asked her to write it out for me.
This last fall, my 7 year old son Phil brought home a medium-sized pumpkin from a school field trip to a local farm; we made this soup recipe again for Thanksgiving but kicked it up a notch by making our own pumpkin puree. It was so easy to do! The added bonus is pumpkin seeds to roast for a snack later.
You should also try this soup as a sauce on top of chicken and rice - the curry gives it a panang style flair that's super delicious!
