Autumn Pumpkin Soup

This Autumn Pumpkin Soup is the perfect warming meal to take to work in colder weather.

Pumpkins are one of my Autumn heroes as they can be roasted as a side dish, made into a soup or even into a dessert! Their sweet flavour isn’t their only plus side, they also boast a lot of nutritional benefits. They’re a great source of dietary fibre, which will keep you fuller longer and help with digestions. They also get that awesome orange glow from beta-carotene which converts to vitamin A in the body!



Serves 2 Ready in 55 minutes Good For


Chop the pumpkin into bitesize chunks.

Heat the oil in a large pot until it has melted, add the shallots and cook for 5 minutes with a pinch of salt until golden. Add the garlic and stir for 30 seconds then add the dried spices and 2 tbsp of the stock, stir well for 30 seconds until fragrant, then add the pumpkin and a big pinch of salt. Stir for a minute, coating the pumpkin in the spices then add the rest of the stock and coconut milk plus another pinch of salt. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer, simmer for 40 minutes until the pumpkin is cooked through then puree until smooth.

To make the toasted coconut flakes, in a small pan heat the coconut oil then add the maple syrup and cinnamon, stir well the pour in the coconut flakes and coat them in the spiced syrup, cook for 5 minutes until golden then leave to the side to cool.

Plate the hot soup with the cool and crunchy toasted coconut flakes on top.
