Ingredients

  • 2 small to medium pie pumpkins, halved and seeded (or substitute kabocha or butternut squash) or 2 cups canned pumpkin
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable or chicken stock 
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped 
  • 1 tablespoon peeled, chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 stalks lemongrass, crushed 
  • One 16-ounce can coconut milk 
  • 1/4 cup red curry paste 
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce, plus more for seasoning
  • Juice of 1 lime, plus more for seasoning 
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper 
  • Sriracha, to taste (optional)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Roast the pumpkin until very tender, about 40 minutes. When cool enough to handle, scrape the flesh from the skin and discard the skin. Reserve 2 cups of pumpkin flesh.

Combine the vegetable stock, onion, garlic, ginger and lemongrass in a 4-quart saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes. Turn off heat, cover pan and let steep for 1 hour. Strain through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth, pressing to remove all the liquid. You should have about 2 cups of stock.

Wipe out the saucepan. Add the reserved 2 cups pumpkin flesh, coconut milk, and 1 cup of the stock to the saucepan and bring to a simmer.

Meanwhile, combine curry paste with 1/2 cup of the remaining stock in a bowl and stir until smooth. Add the curry mixture to the soup. Simmer the soup for about 20 minutes, adding more stock if the soup is too thick.

Add the fish sauce and lime juice. Taste for seasoning and add more fish sauce, lime juice, salt or pepper to taste. You can also add a squirt of sriracha if more heat is desired.
