{pumpkin soup with coconut and ginger}

November 13, 2012

There’s not much that I like about the cold season..
I do like warming up with a bowl of hot soup on cold day, though! And it doesn’t get much better than a deliciously creamy coconut-ginger-pumpkin soup.

I’ve made this recipe for years now, but never even wrote down a recipe. I always just kind of improvised. It’s an easy recipe (no need to even peel the hokkaido pumpkin), so it always turned out pretty delicious. This last time I made it though, I wrote it down so I could share it with you. ;)

I hope you’ll like it!

I’m partying here! ❤

  1. Melt the butter in a large pot and add the chopped up onions.
  2. Add the pumpkin, potatoes, carrots and ginger and sauté for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil.
  4. Let simmer at medium heat for about 15–20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Pour into a food processor or use a handheld blender and mix until you have a smooth texture.
  6. Add coconut milk and salt & pepper to taste and heat without boiling.
  7. Decorate with fresh herbs, as chive, basil or mint and serve with bread.

  9. Hi!

    This recipe looks great! Can it be adapted to using canned organic pumpkin instead of chopping up a pumpkin?

    Thanks so much!
