A bit of a misnomer here. The prawns in this recipe make it an even more rich and hearty soup than its name suggests – almost a meal in itself. The pumpkin gives substance to the ensemble, while the coconut adds its pleasant richness to that of the prawns.

In Thailand, such a soup features only coconut milk, but I have substituted some chicken stock for a portion of the milk; this makes it lighter and, I believe, even more satisfying. But the taste of Thailand shines through.
