Pumpkin Ginger Soup
This pumpkin ginger soup recipe come from John Lee. Years ago, John and I bought wrote for local NJ foodie websites Hot From the Kettle and Devil Gourmet. We also did many cooking demonstrations together, including a few at at our local Williams Sonoma.
One of our Williams Sonoma demos was for Thanksgiving. I made my curried pumpkin peanut soup using the WS butternut squash puree, and John made this soup. It's a great appetizer for any fall meal, especially Thanksgiving. But it's also a nice dish to serve with lunch, with or without a sandwich on the side.
How to Make Pumpkin Ginger Soup
This soup is soup-er easy to make!
- First you combine the pumpkin puree, vegetable stock and coconut milk together in a large pot and mix it until everything is smooth.
- Next you mix in the lemon juice and ginger.
- Then you bring the mixture to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Allow your soup to simmer five minutes and then serve it.
It's that simple!
John says you won’t notice the lemon juice unless you leave it out. The tiny bit of acid from the lemon really brings out the pumpkin's flavors.
