basil pumpkin soup

July 19, 2012

basil pumpkin soup i know i know, pumpkin’s in july?! while i realize that this recipe won’t exactly be seasonal for most of you, it’s really just a testament to the amazing produce they grow here in california! needless to say, we were gifted some pumpkins this week, and this is what they turned in to. it was so tasty that i thought you might enjoy it as well, even if you do just bookmark it for november!

ingredients:

- 3 small pumpkins, roasted
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 can coconut milk
- 2 cups veggie stock
- 2 tbs coconut oil
- 1 cup of fresh basil, chopped
- 2 tbs fresh ginger, minced
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tbs turmeric
- 1 tbs red curry paste
- salt + pepper to taste

directions:

1. preheat oven to 450°f. place pumpkins on a baking sheet and roast whole for 30-45 minutes, until a knife easily glides through the flesh of the pumpkin. once cool enough to touch, start peeling away the skin (if they roasted long enough, this part will be easy!). cut in half and scoop out the seeds, then chop pumpkin flesh. set aside.

2. place a large stock pot over medium heat and add 2 tbs coconut oil. add onions and cook until translucent, 5-7 minutes. add pumpkin and basil and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.

3. add coconut milk, veggie stock, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric, curry paste, salt and pepper and let simmer about 15 minutes.

4. puree the soup. i use a hand blender, but you can also work in batches with a standard blender. enjoy!
