Delicious! I put and extra 1/2 cup of coconut cream in because I had some extra in the fridge. My food processor isn't working so I used a potato masher and the pumpkin came out with a nice consistency. My husband has declared this his new favorite soup!
EXCELLENT! My family really enjoyed this soup, Eve! My daughter helped make it, and had 2 great big bowls! (she's the "picky" one, so I was so pleased!) Very simple to make, and it was ready in about 45 minutes! Next time I will cut the coconut milk a little, maybe to 2/3 cup. The coriander paste is a fabulous addition at the end. I will be making this soup often! Thanks for a fabulous recipe!
