Thai Inspired Pumpkin Soup

Week Two Challenge for Fit & Fabulous Fall Challenge

Try a new healthy recipe.

I love to cook. I really do. I find it very relaxing after a long day of work to just focus on chopping and cooking dinner. It takes my mind off the day.

I have always cooked ever since I was a kid. I would help my mom at the stove. I would cook dinner for my dad when my mom was at work. Then I started cooking for my boyfriend and myself when I got older.

Now, I tend to cook only for myself. I seldom use recipes and tend to just create something in a pot or pan. I'm not usually disappointed.

Some friends think I missed my calling as a chef. Sometimes I think they might be right and that I would rather be cooking all day that do what I am currently doing.

Anyway, I decided to make a Thai inspired pumpkin soup.

Ingredients: Roasted Pumpkin, Cilantro, Lime, Red Onion, Coconut Milk, Sriracha, Garlic, Chicken Stock, Peanut Butter, S&P to taste.
Why can't these be the right way? Jeepers!

Voila! It is sweet, but with a real kick to it! It will be great for those cool months to clear the sinuses and warm up the hands.
