This Thai curry butternut squash soup can also be a mixture of origins. I do not suppose butternut grows in Thailand, however the candy pumpkin goes so properly with Thai flavors. Curry butternut soup has been on my record of recipes to beat for fairly a while and I simply could not resist seasoning them with pink Thai curry paste as I did for my candy potato soup.
I added another Thai flavor to prime it off, like coriander and roasted coconut flakes. The soup is de facto creamy and but very mild because it consists virtually solely of butternuts and solely has a strudel of coconut milk over it.
This soup shouldn’t be so spicy that it does not go properly with different meals. In actual fact, I feel its colours and flavors would enliven a conventional Thanksgiving meal. This soup is a part of Becky#Seateasonal Thanksgiving Potluck.
