Test Kitchen Tip

Red curry paste is a common ingredient in Thai cooking. With a plethora of ingredients it packs a flavor punch, so don’t skip it.


Melt butter in a pot over medium heat. Add onions and bell pepper; sweat until softened, 78 minutes.

Add curry paste, ginger, garlic, and coriander; cook 1 minute. Stir in pumpkin purée; cook 1 minute. Stir in broth and coconut milk and simmer 57 minutes, then purée soup with a handheld blender.

Stir in cilantro, chili garlic sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, and fish sauce. Season soup with salt; serve with lime wedges and cashews.


So the ginger and garlic distribute evenly and give you the most flavor, grate them on a Microplane.


Cook out some of the moisture in the canned pumpkin to intensify its flavor in the soup.
