ginger and coriander pumpkin soup

Here is another heart warming dish to keep you warm during winter! It’s thick, creamy and perfect for a cold winter night served with some crusty bread rolls. The recipe calls for the soup to be blended into a smooth consistency, if you don’t have an immersion blender you can use a food processor or even a Nutribullet in small batches.

How to do it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lay the pumpkin pieces out on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Bake these for 30-40 minutes until soft.
  2. In a medium or large saucepan, heat up the remaining olive oil. Fry the shallots and garlic until translucent, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the ginger and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add the vegetable stock, the softened pumpkin, the fresh coriander and a dash of salt and pepper. Simmer for about 30 minutes until slightly reduced and aromatic.
  5. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup in the pot.
  6. Return to the stove on a medium heat and add the coconut milk and the lime juice and zest, stirring until combined.
  7. Serve with pumpkin seeds, a drizzle of coconut milk and some fresh coriander or toasted pumpkin seeds.
