INGREDIENTS

4kg Pumpkin

1 270ml Coconut Cream

½ cup Fresh Chopped Corriander Leaves

Pepper to taste

METHOD

Chop pumpkin into pieces approx 2 – 3cm and put into a saucepan.

Add enough water to cover the pumpkin and bring to the boil and simmer until the pumpkin is soft.

Take off the heat, and do not strain, simply use a masher to mash the pumpkin with the water inside the saucepan.

Add the can of coconut cream, stir and add chopped coriander.

Stir in briskly, use an electric mixer if the soup is too lumpy.

You may wish to sprinkle some coriander on the top for a garnish as well.

NOTE

If you want the pumpkin softer and easier to cut, put large pieces in the microwave for 5-8 minutes depending on your microwave!
