Some days there just isn’t time for cooking. But we still want healthy options. This 5-minute blender Pumpkin Thai Curry Soup soup is a healthy option for those exact times. Just combine a few organic foods with clean ingredient lists in a blender and you’ve got a tasty, savory, and filling dinner that’s great hot or cold.

Making the Pumpkin Thai Curry Soup
It really takes only 5 minutes. Just pour the pumpkin puree, Thai curry paste, coconut milk, and broth into a blender and pulse. If you have a blender like the Ninja Chef or Vitamix, you can set it on soup mode.
Otherwise, just blend until well combined and of a smooth texture.

Good Hot or Cold
After blending you can just pour the soup directly into bowls and serve. It tastes really good cold!
To make it hot, you can do two things
- Heat the broth before blending. That should heat up the rest of the soup ingredients while you blend it
- After blending, pour the soup into a soup pan and heat until warm. Then serve and enjoy!
Garnishing the Soup
You don’t need much to finish this soup. Fresh cilantro and sesame seeds with sea vegetables will give a hint of freshness and a little crunch. Plus the sea vegetables supply iodine.
Choosing Your Ingredients for the Best Pumpkin Thai Curry Soup
Go for organic coconut milk or cream with minimal additives. I prefer it out of a can because there are fewer gums and emulsifiers. The pumpkin can be homemade pumpkin puree or organic store-bought pumpkin. Make sure to get pure pumpkin with no added ingredients.
I use Thai Curry Paste that is available in most stores and online here.
The bone broth should ideally be pasture-raised and grass-fed if it is beef broth. You can make your own pretty easily. Find instructions here. Alternatively, I like Bonafide Provisions broth that you can find in most freezer sections.
To make this vegan, simply use a vegetable broth instead of a bone broth.
