Curried Pumpkin Coconut Soup

Ingredients:

  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Sambal Olek
  • Coconut Milk
  • Turmeric
  • Canola Oil
  • Yellow Curry Powder
  • Ginger
  • Pumpkin Puree
  • Cinnamon
  • Honey
  • Salt and Pepper

Method:

  1. In large pot saute onions, garlic and ginger on low heat until very soft and lightly browned. (this is an important step as this is the flavour booster. You slowly cook these items until they are almost a paste and you will notice the scent go from really strong to a really pleasant sweet flavour)
  2. Add your curry powder, cinnamon and turmeric to the pot and add more canola oil if needed to make a paste: keep the heat low and cook out the spices for a minute or two
  3. Add the sambal and pumpkin puree. Stir until well combined
  4. Add the coconut milk(you may find it easier to stir using a whisk to get a smooth consistency)
  5. Then add enough water until you achieve the consistency you are looking for
  6. Simmer for about an hour, blitz until perfectly smooth, season with salt, pepper and honey
