Kevin Dundon’s Spiced Pumpkin Soup

Discover the story
From Chef Kevin Dundon, this Spiced Pumpkin Soup is the perfect fall recipe

This soup recipe is creamy, full of fall flavor, and has a surprise hint of curry flavor to it making it warm and just a little spicy.

It’s great to serve on its own, or serve as a pre-starter in an espresso cup!

Tip: To give your soup a little more of a Thai flavor, you can also add a dollop of warmed up full-fat coconut milk to the bottom of the bowl before adding in your soup and serving.
