  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 cup apple unsweetened sauce
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • Pinch of cloves
  • 1 tsp salt for cooking and add to taste along with black pepper

 

  1. Cook pumpkin. [Preheat oven 400F. Cut pumpkin into quarters and gut the insides. Bake for 45 mins to 1 hour or until meat is quite soft.  Scoop out meat, puree in blender and store in fridge until you are ready to make your soup]
  2. Place 4 cups of water or soup stalk into a large pot. Add salt, onion, garlic and ginger and bring to boil. Simmer for 15 mins or until ginger is soft.
  3. Add pumpkin to pot and cook for additional 5 minutes.
