This is a quick easy dinner or lunch that everyone will love you for! We often have this on the weekend when I can not be bothered cooking a big dinner. It keeps very well in the fridge for a number of days.

1 kg of pumpkin
1 onion

2 cloves garlic
1 table spoon olive oil

Salt to taste


  1. Peel and cut both the pumpkin & sweet potato & place in a pot of boiling water on the stove.
  2. Simmer until the vegetables are soft.
  3. In the mean time, dice the onion & the garlic.
  4. Grate the fresh ginger.
  5. Heat a pan with the olive oil and sauté the onion, garlic & ginger until the onion is translucent.
  6. In the food processor, place the cooked onion mix, pumpkin & sweet potato.
  7. Keep the water from the vegetables aside as you will use it in the soup.
  8. Whizz until fully blended & there are no lumps in the soup.
  9. Put the soup back in the pot on the stove top & add back a little bit of the water until the soup is at a consistency that you prefer.
  10. Add salt to taste. Add the coconut milk and stir.
