  • 4 cup pumpkin cubed and boiled
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp fresh ginger grated and juiced
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk approx 1/2 a can
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley and/or mint or cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground thyme optional
  • pinch nutmeg optional
  • sea salt to taste

Candied Walnuts

  • 3 Tbsp walnuts
  • pinch cinnamon
  • smaller pinch nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup or 1 Tbsp water + 1 Tbsp coconut sugar


  • Take the skin off the pumpkin, cube it, and put in a pot of boiling water until soft.
  • Put the rest of the soup ingredients in a blender. OR if you're going to use a hand blender, simply get these ingredients ready, and then add to the pot with the pumpkin once it's softened and drained.
  • While the pumpkin finishes cooking, you can make the candied walnuts by putting a small pan on medium-high heat. Put the walnuts in the hot, dry pan, moving them all the time, until lightly toasted. Add the spices, then the syrup or water + sugar, and leave on the heat while stirring frequently until the water has evaporated and the sugar and spices are glazed onto the walnuts.
  • Easy cleaning tip: Take the walnuts out of the pan once they're done, and then put the back on the heat and immediately deglaze with water.
  • Puree the soup ingredients together, adjusting the seasonings and salt to your taste.

      I don’t see why not… I would say 3 cups… approx… though be cautious and eyeball+taste to get the right ratio with the coconut milk
