Pumpkin and Noodles

I got given some pumkin by a friend yesterday which is not something we have really used much so we decided to try soup. I cooked off some onion, pumpkin and garlic in a little oil, added some fresh curry paste and then covered it all with veg stock and let it cook down. When everything was soft I thought I'd add some rice noodles to make it a little more substantial. What actually happened is the noodles soaked up all the liquid and we ended up with noodles in pumpkin sauce.

Worked really well and I couldn't have come up with it if I tried ! Probably helps that the pumpkin has flavour this time unlike the only other time I tried. Moral of that story is the ones they sell in the super market to carve may look similar but they are not woth eating!


  1. I like pumpkin, and I like noodles... but together...hmmm. I'd have to try that one. Sounds interesting for sure though :)

  2. Pumpkin is one of those vegetables I haven't tried, but your pumpkin noodles do sound nice.
