Pumpkins are very good for your health – they are a extremely nutrient dense food, full of vitamins, minerals, really low on calories and delicious. Pumpkin soups are usually in my regular diet and I even created a recipe on my own, it’s completely dairy/meat free. Here it goes:
- 800 g Pumpkin (any type, I use a regional one)
- 500 ml Water
- 1/2 Onion
- 3-5 Garlic cloves
- 100 g Kale
- Shiitake mushrooms (as many as you like)
- 75-100 ml coconut milk concentrate
- 1 tbsp Canola oil or Olive oil
- 1 tbsp Shoyu
- 1-3 Bay leaves
- 1 Vegetable broth cube
- A pinch of cinnamon
- Salt and black pepper powder (as much as you like)
How to cook:
Cook the pumpkins, bay leaves, broth and the cinnamon together in the water until the pumpkin gets soft, wait for it to cool down and book.
Saute the onion, garlic cloves and the seasoning together and book. Then, saute the kale, shoyu and mushrooms together and book.
Mix everything (except for the kale and mushrooms) in a blender then pour the mixture in a deep pot.
Add the coconut milk, kale and the mushrooms to the mixture and boil on low heat for 10 minutes. Add more salt or other seasonings if you wish. And it’s ready!
