This slightly sweet-and-spicy pumpkin soup is ultra-satisfying. It’s rich, thick and creamy.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp coconut oil

  • 1 medium uncooked shallot(s), minced

  • 1 1⁄2 tsp kosher salt

  • 2 tsp ground ginger

  • 1 tsp minced garlic

  • 1 tsp curry powder

  • 1⁄2 tsp dried coriander leaf

  • 1⁄2 tsp ground cumin

  • 1⁄4 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper

  • 30 oz canned pumpkin, puree

  • 2 cup(s) canned low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 cup(s) light unsweetened coconut milk

  • 2 Tbsp dark brown sugar

  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice

  • 6 tsp cilantro, fresh, chopped

Instructions

  1. In a large soup pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add shallot and salt; cook, stirring frequently, until shallot is softened, about 5 minutes.
