These cooler days have me looking for soup and this one is super easy and slightly different.
When I throw things together like this I am not great with quantities so I do apologise in advance for this. I made enough for 4, although it was so yummy I wished I had made more.
1/2 a pumpkin, peeled and cut in chunks - I used a smaller pumpkin , kent , I think?
1 x brown onion, chopped
4 x cloves of garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon Noccas, more if you like it hotter.
1 tablespoon coconut oil
4 tablespoons Mafe
1- 2 cups of coconut milk or cream.
Heat the coconut oil in a largish saucepan, add chopped onion and Noccas, fry until onion is opaque.
Add pumpkin and toss through and pop the lid on to let the pumpkin sweat a little. (I can relate to this pumpkin,hot flushes...eeek).
Add garlic and coconut milk and simmer until pumpkin is soft.
Add the Mafe and puree with a stick blender until smooth and creamy.
Adjust thickness with more coconut cream or milk if desired.
Serve with crusty bread.
