Thai Chicken, Mushroom & Pumpkin Soup

Thai Chicken Soup feature

With the cooler weather creeping in as well as Zadada and I trying to eat a little healthier (I can report the chocolate consumption has slowed down for this week at least) I felt it was time for some soup!

I was recently flicking my way through a fundraising recipe book when I came across a recipe for Thai Chicken, Mushroom & Pumpkin Soup, I loved the sounds of the ingredients I was reading over, the seeds of flavoursome temptation had been planted and project Thai Chicken Soup was about to be all systems go!

During the cooking and creating process I did make some changes to the original recipe, I felt it needed a little more flavour, fish sauce is one of my favourite things to add to a dish to give it fuller taste so hey presto in it went along with a few other little additions.

The end result was absolutely delicious! I know it’s not the prettiest soup to look at but don’t let that scare you off, once you try it I guarantee you’ll be adding it to your winter soup rotation, it’s so easy to make. Zadada didn’t go searching for a second course, with all the hearty wholesome ingredients, this little treasure is well and truly fit to eat as a main.

Don’t you just love soup?! Really what’s not to love?!

Soup is like a big hug in a bowl, so warming and comforting and speaking of hugs how good are the real things?! I’m talking the ones where you really hold onto someone you love for more than 30 seconds, none of this pat-on-the-back-amby-pamby-let’s-get-it-over-with-stuff, if you don’t believe me you should test the theory! Do ambi-pamby, then follow it up with a 30+ second embrace, there’s a real difference!

Your soup experience won’t be complete without having some delicious crusty bread to dunk into it, giving you confidence of mopping up every last drop of that delicious liquid in your bowl. I looooove Sour Dough!!

Here’s your How-to:
