Pumpkin, Chilli and Coconut Soup


A velvety smooth pumpkin soup velvety with an added hint of Asian-inspired flavours.
By Martyna Candrick

This vegan recipe has a simple twist on the traditional pumpkin soup and is one of my favourites and one of the easiest soups to make. It’s just so warm and comforting.

The chilli adds a little warmth without being too spicy, while the coconut cream adds a wonderful fragrance to the mix. It still produces a creamy, velvety texture but with an added hint of Asian-inspired flavours and an immunity-booster kick.

It freezes well, so it’s a perfect meal to keep on hand for work lunches or last-minute warming dinners.

  8. Heat butter in a small frypan until bubbly. Add bread squares and cook, stirring, until lightly browned and crisp on all sides.
To serve:
  1. Divide soup between bowls and serve croutons on the side. You can drizzle extra coconut cream over the top if you like.
  2. Sprinkle a handful of croutons into the soup at a time – they will remain crispy in every bite.
