Making Of Pumpkin Soup With Coconut Milk
STEP 1: Heat a bit of olive oil in a pot. Throw in the chopped onion and minced garlic. When they start smelling delicious, keep sautéing until they become soft and see-through.
STEP 2: Now, toss in those pumpkin cubes. Let them hang out with the onions and garlic. Stir occasionally. You’ll notice the pumpkin getting a bit caramelized, which makes it even sweeter.
STEP 3: Here’s where the magic happens. Pour in the vegetable broth and coconut milk. Turn up the heat a bit, wait for it to gently boil, and then reduce it to a simmer. Let it simmer until the pumpkin chunks become soft and ready to blend.
STEP 4: Time to blend! If you have a hand blender, it’s super easy – just blend right in the pot. But if you’re using a regular blender, let the soup cool a bit before blending.
STEP 5: Back in the pot with the blended goodness. Now, add some salt and pepper. Trust your instincts – a pinch here, a dash there. Stir it all in and taste the magic!
STEP 6: Ladle the creamy soup into bowls. For that extra touch, sprinkle on some fresh thyme leaves and add a handful of bread croutons. Enjoy your heartwarming soup!
