Easy and healthy creamy Spicy Pumpkin Soup, that’s bold and rich with Asian flavours.
Recipe type: Appetiser
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 500g Pumpkin
  • 200g Sweet Potatoes - cut into chunks
  • 1 large White Onion - cut into half
  • 1 teaspoon good quality Chili Powder (adjust amount to your preference of heat level)
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1 liter Water or Vegetable Stock
To Garnish
  • 2 tablespoon thick Coconut Milk
  • Coriander
  • sliced Red Chili
  • 1 Lime
Instructions
Method 1
  1. Cut pumpkin into half and remove the seeds. Cut sweet potatoes and onion.
  2. Place cut pumpkin (with skin), sweet potatoes and onion into steamer, and steam for 10 minutes until sweet potatoes are fork tender (easily pierced with a fork). Scoop out the pumpkin flesh into blender, add potatoes, onion, hot water and seasoning into blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Serve warm with a drizzle of coconut milk, coriander, red chili and a squeeze of lime.
Method 2
  1. Cut pumpkin into 2” chunks, remove skin and seeds. Cut sweet potatoes into chunks. Cut onion into quarters.
  2. Heat up medium size pot on medium fire, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and onion. Saute for 2 minutes until onion is slightly brown. Add pumpkin and sweet potato chunks to roughly brown them on each side. I did not brown every piece, just a quick general sear to get a caramelised flavour from the chunks. Then add in water, simmer until the sweet potatoes are fork tender (easily pierced with a fork). Add seasoning and blend with hand blender (or pour into blender) till smooth.
  3. Serve warm with a drizzle of coconut milk, coriander, red chili and a squeeze of lime.
