Pumpkin, Corn and Lemongrass Soup with Cilantro Cream
For my 3rd piece of Long Island Cheese Pumpkin, I wanted to make a pumpkin soup. I literally woke up the other morning thinking it would be neat to add some corn into the pumpkin soup - yea, I think about food far too often. I then came across this recipe for Pumpkin, Corn and Lemongrass Soup on Epicurious.com. I LOVED the idea of adding lemongrass... so I tried it.
Not too short after, I came across another recipe that sparked my intrest - Cilantro Cream from my new roots blog. BOY was that an incredible combo with the pumpkin lemongrass soup... Match made in soup heaven. I think this may be my favorite soup I've ever made.
