Don’t know what went wrong, but this was very bitter. Made the pumpkin/gingerbread and that turned out great.
I wonder if I could use butternut squash in place of pumpkin? I love pumpkin, but I also love butternut squash :-)
Hi Denise, did you know that the canned pumpkin purée that you buy in the store is actually made of butternut squash? It is! Both are very similar winter squashes. You can use them interchangeably for recipes like this.
Can almond milk be substituted for the coconut milk?
The soup will not be as thick with the almond milk, so you may want to reduce the amount of broth. It will also not taste quite as Thai without the coconut, but it’s certainly worth a try. If you do try it, please let us know how it goes.
If using fresh pumpkin Can you add the pumpkin to the slow cooker raw and then puree all together with immersion blender when cooked?
I did not test the recipe with raw pumpkin chunks. It should be fine to do fresh pumpkin, though. One way to ensure that it cooks in the time is to actually grate your fresh pumpkin on a box grater or in your food processor. Otherwise, you may have to adjust the cooking time. Please let us know if you try it and what your results were.
Served it with a curried smoked duck breast. This will be a regular menu item for cold snowy days.
Looks delicious I am making it now
This soup will be part of our Thanksgiving dinner! I tested it out and am happy to say it is lovely! Smooth and asking to be accompanied with a good bread or cracker. We do a smorgasbord style affair so it will be in the slow cooker with small cups and rice crackers and yogurt blended with minced chives at the side. (We have a few people who do not care for cilantro or spicy food. Their loss!) As I was pulling out the vegies I found one smallish parsnip looking lonely and added it to the dish. It seemed the right thing to do, and so it was!
I’m so happy to be a part of your celebration! Thank you for your kind comments.
