  • 2 tablespoons coconut or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • Two 15-ounce cans pure pumpkin puree (or 4 cups fresh roasted pumpkin)
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • One 15-ounce can coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

How to make this recipe

  1. Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven or stockpot. Sauté the onion over medium-high heat until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and continue to cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

  2. Carefully stir in the pumpkin, stock, coconut milk, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat to medium and simmer for 20-25 minutes, until the soup coats the back of a spoon. Puree using an immersion or stand blender until very smooth.

  3. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, toast the coconut over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 3 minutes.

  4. Serve the soup in bowls and garnish with the toasted coconut.
