Thai Pumpkin Soup


  • 1/2 large pumpkin
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 stick of lemon grass, chopped
  • 1 brown onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 cup veggie stock
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1 - 2 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp chilli (or to taste)
  • Pepper, to taste

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees C fan bake.

Cut the skin off the pumpkin and discard the seeds. Roughly cut the pumpkin into large pieces and place on an oven tray. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 30-35 minutes, until soft when poked with a fork. Once cooked, set aside to cool down.

Heat a deep pot on medium to low heat with oil. Add in chopped onion, crushed garlic, grated ginger and finely chopped lemon grass. Fry for 5-8 minutes, until onion has gone translucent. Add in cooked pumpkin, veggie stock, coconut milk, salt, ground coriander and chilli. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes.

Use a stick blender or transfer into a food processor. Blend until smooth, make sure you blend well, otherwise lemon grass might be a little stringy!

Transfer back to pot and cook for another 10-15 minutes. Serve with fresh bread!
