- 600g diced pumpkin flesh (one big pumpkin should work, plus two mini ones for serving. Save the seeds for the topping!)
- 1 chopped onion
- 1 crushed garlic clove
- 1.5 tablespoons Coconut Oil
- ½ teaspoon ground cumin
- ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
- 150ml Coconut Milk
- 2 small bay leaves
- a pinch of chilli flakes
- lime juice (about half a lime)
- pumpkin seeds
- cayenne pepper
- maple syrup or Coconut Syrup!
Let’s get started!
1. Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees, and roast the diced pumpkin for 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, cook your onion and garlic in coconut oil until soft.
3. Stir in the roasted pumpkin, bay leaves, and spices until all mixed together. Add your stock, and leave to simmer for 15 minutes.
4. Remove the bay leaves and mix everything together in a blender.
5. Reheat gently, then stir in the coconut milk, chilli flakes, and lime juice.
6. Roast the pumpkin seeds in cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and syrup (or coconut syrup!), and once crispy, serve the hot soup in mini carved out pumpkins and sprinkle the roasted seeds on top of the soup!
7. It’s delicious with some yummy toasted bread.
