Coconut Curry Pumpkin Soup

Coconut Curry Pumpkin Soup


"This is a delicious vegan version of pumpkin soup with just enough spice for a mild kick. It's made with coconut oil instead of butter and uses light coconut milk in place of milk or cream. It makes a great starter, or is a perfect small meal on its own as it is quite filling."

  • Ready In

  1. Heat the coconut oil in a deep pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the onions and garlic; cook until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix in the vegetable broth, curry powder, salt, coriander, and red pepper flakes. Cook and stir until the mixture comes to a gentle boil, about 10 minutes. Cover, and boil 15 to 20 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Whisk in the pumpkin and coconut milk, and cook another 5 minutes.
  2. Pour the soup into a blender, filling only half way and working in batches if necessary; process until smooth. Return to a pot, and reheat briefly over medium heat before serving.

This was fantastic - a friend of ours made this soup for my husband and I a few months ago, and this recipe was almost as good as hers. I made the non-vegan version (used butter and chicken broth instead of coconut oil and veggie broth), and it ended up being very good. One difference between this soup and the one my friend made is that she added a little turmeric to hers, which I will try the next time I make the soup - it adds a little extra kick. I recommend topping the soup with flax seeds and pine nuts for a satisfying crunch! It's also nice to serve it with some kind of bread for soaking up every last delicious drop. Thanks for this great recipe!


I had high hopes for this recipe after reading the reviews. It seemed like the perfect way to use up the leftover pumpkin and coconut milk I had from two other recipes. But it was full-fat coconut milk, and perhaps that was my problem. It was too rich, so even though the flavour was good, there was an overpowering fattiness-- so much so I could hardly finish my small bowl. My recommendation-- do not use full-fat coconut milk!


This was a really good soup. To spice it up a little bit, I added 1/4 tsp ginger and sprinkled in some cinnamon. Also, a dab of sour cream on top made this soup great.
