This Thai Pumpkin Soup is delicious with depth of Asian flavors from the combination of ginger, chili and garlic ending with coconut milk. Despite its simplicity, it is impressive on your dining table and will have your guests go back for more.

If you want to avoid using coconut milk, just add an extra cup of broth instead and adjust chili to your taste.
