Adorned with a homemade baby kale pumpkin seed pesto, this creamy and delicious pumpkin soup will warm you up on cold rainy days and can be frozen for later.
- For the pesto, place baby kale, parsley, pumpkin seeds, lemon rind, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil and water in a food processor. Process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
- Melt coconut oil in a large saucepan. Add in diced squash, onion, minced garlic and ginger. Cook briefly and sprinkle a pinch of nutmeg. Pour in white wine and broth. Cook, covered, for about 25-30 minutes until tender.
- Using a hand held blender, process soup until smooth. Add in coconut milk and season. Serve the soup warm topped with pesto and if desired, in a roasted pumpkin bowl.
