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.
