Super Simple Pumpkin Soup
Recipe type: Soup
Type of food: Paleo
Serves: 6-8
What you need:
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 large pumpkin, baked and chopped (or butternut squash)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 can coconut cream or milk (we used Ayam cream)
  • 4 cups water (plus one extra cup so 5 total if you use a thick coconut cream)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Sprinkle coconut threads
  • (Optionally - 1 lime leaf, 1 lemongrass and 1 chilli, chopped - we did not use.)
What to do...
  1. Put a whole pumpkin (skin on) in oven and bake until tender - depends size but aprox 40 minutes at 180 degrees celsius usually does the trick - then allow to cool on bench.
  2. Saute the onion in the oil for aprox 5 minutes, stirring.
  3. Add garlic and cook another couple of minutes.
  4. Remove skin from pumpkin.
  5. Add all ingredients (except salt & pepper & garnish) to a food processor and blend until smooth. (If pumpkin still hot just be careful not to create heat vacuum in blender but should be ok with the added cold ingredients.)
  6. Season with salt & pepper to taste and garnish with coconut threads and/or cream.
