This was good but I felt like it was missing something - I think it was a lemongrass or citrus flavor. I added some Thai red curry paste, which has pretty much the same seasonings already in this, except it also has lemongrass, and that helped. I think you could also just squeeze some lime into it.
The first of my dishes from my Pick your Chef choice and this did not disappoint! I used thai coriander leaf rather than the usual coriander leaf as the former is a tad more intense. I had a lonely chilli pepper in the fridge so I went with this and it provides a very nice hot touch. However it may be too much for small children if you go the chilli route. There is a lot of ginger in this but it is balanced out very nicely by the coconut milk. Excellent pumpkin soup recipe!
