Who says party food can only be limited to snacks and finger foods?
We decided to make the most out of our stay-at-home-halloween-extravaganza and spice it up with the ultimate fall dish: a creamy, dreamy, and incredibly flavourful PUMPKIN SOUP! Plus, if you serve it out of an actual pumpkin that automatically makes it halloweeny enough, right…? 🎃
For the recipe you’ll need:
- 1 medium sized butternut squash, pealed and cut into cubes (feel free to use any other pumpkin of choice of similar size)
- 1 medium sweet potato, pealed and cut into cubes
- 1 can chickpeas, washed and drained
- 2 cups vegetable stock
- 1 cup coconut milk powder
- ½ onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- ½ tbsp coconut oil
- ½ tbsp coconut sugar
- ½ tsp paprika
- 1 tsp turmeric powder
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Coconut cream + herbs of choice for toppings
Start off by chopping the onion into small cubes and crushing the garlic finely.
Transfer the two to a pan with coconut oil on medium heat and make sure to stir and every now and again so they don’t burn. Let caramelised.
Add the pumpkin, sweet potato chunks and chickpeas into the pan, stir it all together and throw in the vegetable stock.
Add the coconut sugar, paprika and turmeric and stir a bit more. Bring it to a boil and let it cook for approx 10-15min on low heat.
Add in the milk powder and stir until there are no clumps.
Add salt & pepper to taste.
With a hand blender, mix it all together until nice and smooth (you can also use a normal blender for this, it just avoids extra dishes later!)
Transfer the soup to your serving pumpkin (or dish) of choice, drizzle some coconut cream on top and finish it off with sprinkled herbs of choice. Voila!
