Pumpkin soup is an all time fall classic for us. My version is based on vegetable stock and coconut milk, flavored with ginger and various spices. Usually I make a big pot, which we warm up the next day or to make myself a work lunch. I love pumpkin soup. Sometimes I intermix leftover vegetables such as carrots or parsnip.
There is another pumpkin left in the kitchen so I would say: pickled pumpkin! I am a big fan of pickles but I am a total beginner when it comes to making preserves. But making sweet and sour pickled pumpkin is quite easy and super tasty.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend – maybe with a hot pumpkin soup!
Sear pumpkin and ginger with some olive oil and the spice mixture for about 5 minutes. Add vegetable stock and let everything simmer over medium heat for 15-20 minutes until the pumpkin is slightly soft. Add coconut milk and then purée everything. Season to taste with salt.
