Jamie Oliver Thai Pumpkin Soup Ingredients
- Olive Oil – small enough amounts to sauté the flavor-based components. Coconut oil or vegetable oil are also acceptable substitutes.
- Onion, Garlic, and Ginger – are the primary source of flavor in the broth. For the sake of speed and ease, I opted to use minced garlic and ginger, although fresh would work just as well.
- Red Curry Paste – to provide soft warmth and aroma Alternatively, you may use yellow or green curry paste, depending on what you have on hand. Red curry paste is available in supermarkets and Asian shops. You may also prepare and keep it in the fridge or freezer.
- Pumpkin – You may use butternut squash or pumpkin for the stated squash. You may add more flavor by roasting the pumpkin ahead of time (or by using cooked pumpkin that you already have on hand), but this is optional.
- Coconut Milk – For a richer texture, I use full-fat coconut milk, but low-fat coconut milk works just as well. You may also use ordinary cream, but make sure to pick one that won’t curdle when cooked. Alternatives include coconut milk or cream. Coconut cream is comparable to coconut milk in flavor but richer and thicker due to its increased fat content.

How To Store Thai Pumpkin Soup Leftovers?
One of the most convenient things about Thai pumpkin soup is how well it keeps and reheats for a later dinner. Any leftover Thai Pumpkin Soup may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days if stored in a quality airtight container.
Absolutely! This soup is suitable for long-term storage in the freezer (up to three months). The soup must be cooled to room temperature first.
