Ingredients

      • 1kg pumpkin, peeled and cut into 1-2cm pieces
      • 1 onion, chopped
      • 2 teaspoons of garlic
      • 2 red peppers
      • 2 tablespoons of red curry paste
      • 1 tin of coconut cream
      • 1 handful of roughly chopped fresh coriander leaves

 

Method

To make the soup

Heat a large saucepan over a gentle heat.

Add the pumpkin, onion, garlic, red peppers and curry paste, stir and cook gently for a few minutes.

Add the coconut cream and keep stirring, then add a pint of cold water and gradually bring to the boil.

Reduce to a low heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until pumpkin has softened.

Remove from heat, let the soup cool and either blend in a food processor or mash up until fairly smooth.  Season with salt and pepper and top with the fresh coriander.

Serve and enjoy with your neighbours at an Autumn get together, a great opportunity to catch up after the summer and start planning your Big Lunch!
