SPICED PUMPKIN SOUP

Spiced Pumpkin Soup

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric 
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 15-ounce can organic pumpkin puree
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups coconut milk
 
1. Heat the oil in a large pot, and then add the onion and garlic.  Cook over medium heat until onion is soft, about five minutes.  Add the turmeric, ginger, cumin, cinnamon, cayenne and salt.  Cook over medium heat for two minutes, stirring constantly.  Add salt as needed.
 
2. Whisk in the vegetable stock, pumpkin, maple syrup, and lemon juice.  Simmer 15 minutes.
 
3. Stir in the milk, and then puree the soup in a blender in two or three batches until very smooth.  You may also use an immersion blender to achieve the same results. DO NOT ALLOW SOUP TO BOIL!
