This is a flavourful soup made with pumpkin, sweet potato, onion and leek. Coconut milk adds a nice finishing -and vegan - touch.
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! - 13 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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! - 08 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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. - 04 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
