Thai Pumpkin Soup…mmmmmm

This soup is so good. Like addicitive yummy, warm yourself on a cold day, good. I am so thankful that a friend mentioned he was cooking it on FB and after a few requests for him to share the recipe he shot a photo of it from the cookbook he had and shared. Thank you Rudy!

The original recipe , I believe, came from a Vitamix recipe book. I assume anyhow. I changed it up after looking over it  because I thought the olive oil  was way to much  and coconut oil just sounded better, and I don’t own a Vitamix. *gasp* I am happy with my blender. It works fab. As does my hand emulsifier which is what I used in this recipe.

This pulls together quickly. Would make a great first course to a Thai meal, or add some veggie egg rolls or pad thai for a full meal.
