I’m not a big pumpkin soup fan & usually just make it for my husband but this recipe was a really lovely alternative to my usual recipe. The thai red curry paste & coconut milk made it extra tasty & not too spicy with only a hint of heat. We all loved it!

Delicious and easy. As spicy as you wish to make it. I think you could do it with a laksa paste base as well. Give it a go … yum

Sorry Melita I never got notified of your question if you see this it isn’t spicy at all my young children eat this with no problem it just gives it a lovely depth of flavour and just a little hint of chilli. As Paulene mentioned you can use salt reduced stock and fish sauce or if you want to you can leave the fish sauce completely out.

Melita if you are watching your salt intake the stock and fish sauce would contain a fair amount. You could use salt reduced versions instead perhaps?
I wouldn’t think 2 tsp of paste would be overly spicy no but I’ve not cooked it myself to be certain πŸ™‚
