  • 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.
