Hokkaido Coconut Soup

Labels: { , , , } | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

Super creamy and deliciously nourishing, this pumpkin soup with coconut milk is the ultimate warmer for cold rainy days. The warmth of fresh ginger adds a lovely kick to the soup. If you like, serve the soup with some roasted poultry leftover, a sprinkle of coconut flakes, pomegranate seeds and fresh herbs. It's also very easy to veganize the soup by using vegetable stock and leaving out the meat.

  • 1 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1 Large shallot, coarsely chopped
  • 30 g Fresh ginger, peeled, coarsely chopped
  • 1.5 kg Hokkaido or other squash, deseeded, chopped
  • 400 ml Coconut milk
  • 400 ml Chicken broth or water
  • 1 Lime, juiced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 300 g Roasted duck breast, sliced
  • Parsley for garnishing
  • Desiccated coconut flakes for garnishing
  • Pomegranate seeds for garnishing
  1. Heat oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Add chopped shallot and ginger and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes until fragrant. Add pumpkin, coconut milk, chicken broth or water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes or until pumpkin is soft.
  2. Remove saucepan from heat and set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Using an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. Add in lime juice and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with roasted duck breast slices, chopped parsley and desiccated coconut flakes and / or pomegranate seeds. | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

Hokkaido is, at least to me, the best pumpkin there is; combined with coconut, this soup is on my list for this week Angie. Thank you very much !

Hi Angie :)
I’ve been all about soup ever since it turned cold outside, but haven’t been working a lot with coconut milk yet, and I have no idea why. I don’t drink cows milk so I’m not sure why I’m so scared of it. Have a great week Angie

delicious must be this soup

tigerfish 16/3/19 02:36

Pumpkin soup has been my favorite soup to make this fall/winter season. Fresh pumpkin is the best as what you have featured here. But there were times I was in a rush and had to use canned 100% pumpkin puree. Either way, I do like to add a finishing touch to the soup with a little coconut oil. The lingering aroma is alluring.

Nammi 16/3/19 05:58

love that gorgeous colour. enjoy the weekend

Enza 16/3/19 17:22

"Soup is a lot like family. Each ingredient enhances the others; each batch has its own characteristics; and it needs time to simmer to reach its full potential." Marge Kennedy.
