On the Facebook page for Cooking Traditional Foods, I often post what I’m cooking, along with reminders to do things like thaw your meat and soak your grains. Today I mentioned that I’m making curried pumpkin soup in preparation for the power outage that is expected. Several people requested the recipe, so I decided to post it here.
Beginning tonight and through Tuesday, we’re expecting ice and snow. I’m preparing four day’s worth of food. I’ve also made potato soup and I’m making chili, cornbread, some brownies and possibly some baked goods for breakfast later today.
This soup is insanely good. The combination of pumpkin, coriander, coconut milk and curry is beyond fabulous. Don’t skimp on the rapadura, it offsets the spiciness and really makes the flavor pop. If I could only have two soups in my life, this would be one of my choices.
