Spiced Coconut Pumpkin Soup

Scroll down to content

I love soup, but this spiced pumpkin soup is something else! It’s so warming and cosy.  I never used to like pumpkin soup growing up, but now I am obsessed and always make this recipe when I’m feeling like something warm, comforting and delish! In winter, going to the markets is something I love, though I don’t do it often, you can find amazing pumpkins and root vegetables there!

At my work we have shared lunch days and I made this for one of our soup days and everyone asked me for the recipe.  This one below is enough to fill a big slow cooking pot. But you can just adjust the amount of pumpkin and amount of coconut milk to suit. I’m not a big fan of following recipes, I’m more of a chuck it together and see how it pans out kinda gal, but this recipe is pretty easy to follow.
