Pumpkin soup with coconut milk

The Fall Classic refined pumpkin soup with coconut milk.

The pumpkin soup is a classic in the fall. As every year in the fall the searching for the tastiest pumpkin recipes begins again. I enjoy spending a soup of butternut pumpkins and refine it with coconut milk. This gives the whole thing a little exotic touch and tastes delicious. If you want, you can make this with a chicken skewer and refine the whole soup with pumpkin seed oil. With the seed oil the flavor from the pumpkin comes through even better. But the soup taste also without the pumpkin seed oil and the chicken skewer. You can make it also good in advance and of course in big amounts. This soup is my must to every fall.
