Pumpkin Curry Soup

Pumpkin Curry Soup Fall. Cool air. Soups. Pumpkin. All of these things were swirling around in my head one night recently as I was thinking about what to make for dinner. It all came together with this bold-flavored soup with a curry flare.

I had no problem throwing the soup together with it’s many flavor-inducing components, but honestly I did have a harder time figuring out what to call it. So, Pumpkin Curry Soup it is. Not flashy or fancy, but with enough intrigue that you might just want to try it out yourself! The rich and creamy broth paired with the delicate rice noodles really did hit the spot for a great Fall dinner. Try it out, let me know how you like it…and give me an idea of what you might call it! Happy chilly, soupy, Fall days! Enjoy! -Shelley.

In a large stockpot add all ingredients except peanut butter, curry seasoning, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then simmer until chicken breast is cooked through. Remove cooked chicken breast and allow to cool a bit before cutting up.

In the meantime, have a pot of boiling water on the stove to cook the rice noodles. It doesn’t take long at all…follow the directions on the package for your specific noodles. Drain and rinse with cold water thoroughly to stop the cooking process. Drizzle with oil and mix to keep the noodles from sticking together. Set aside.
