  • 1 tsp curry

Preparation

Cut pumpkin in half and deseed.

Place each half open-side down in a pan with about an inch of water. Bake at 400° for 40-50 minutes or until tender.

While pumpkin is baking, sauté onion in coconut oil in a large stockpot. Once onion is browned on the edges, add chicken broth, curry, and ginger. Bring to a boil and then remove from heat.

Let pumpkin and broth cool slightly. Scoop the meat of the pumpkin out and place in a blender. Add the broth to the blender and blend until smooth. Pour blended soup back into the stockpot and reheat, and serve.
