CARROT AND PUMPKIN SOUP WITH COCONUT CREAM

CARROT AND PUMPKIN SOUP WITH COCONUT CREAM

Here's one of my big classics of autumn/winter season, a good essential among my common recipes repertory. There is nothing better than a nice hot soup to warm us up. It is in addition one of those great convenient dishes for a light yet saciating dinner. There are multitude of combinations but this is one of my favourites. The slightly spicy touch and the sweetness and creaminess of the coconut cream are the perfect match with the pumpkin and the carrots.

As with most of the vegetable soups I suggest you try to roast them, it adds so much flavour and a good different touch. Although if you are looking to make it simpler and quicker you can steam them or cook them with a broth or water, like I did at this occasion. If you are making it this way it is worth to first sauté all the veggies a bit with the oil, it will give it a very nice roasted taste

Additionally if you have a last minute meal to prepare for friends coming home to dinner and you have no idea what to prepare that does not incur beforehand preparation this one is a perfect option. You just need to serve it on a bowl with a few roasted pumpkin or sesame seeds, some chopped fresh cilantro or parsley sprinkled over it, some salt flakes and a drizzle of coconut cream and... ta-dah!!

So here's the recipe for this yummy carrot and pumpkin soup with coconut cream.
