This week has been all about my affair with pumpkins. I’d rather eat them then carve them! Once I had the puree and seeds prepared, it was time to harness them for delicious eating enjoyment.

I scoured the internet for recipes for pumpkin soup, ultimately devising my own take on a pumpkin curry soup. This recipe is vegan and generally allergen-free. (Any kind of “milk” can be used depending on your tastes and needs.)

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 cups fresh pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Additional salt and pepper to taste
  • Pumpkin seeds for garnish

Half the pumpkin puree (around 2.5 cups) went into the Vitamix.

Meanwhile, I sautéed the diced garlic and onions in the olive oil, patiently allowing them to carmelize.

Pour into a bowl and garnish with some of those salted seeds. I may have licked my bowl clean…
