Melinda Hinkson


1 tablespoon coconut oil (olive oil is fine if you don't have coconut)
1/2 cup diced carrot
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced celery
3 tablespoons grated ginger
4 cloves garlic, diced
2 dried bay leaves
2 15-ounce cans pumpkin purée (or 4 cups homemade puree)
1 15-oz can coconut milk, shaken
2 1/2 cups low sodium vegetable broth (plus up to one cup more, to taste)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Hot chili powder, to serve (optional)
Chopped fresh cilantro, to serve (optional)
Coconut milk yogurt, to serve (optional)
Special equipment:

3-quart or larger slow cooker
Immersion blender (or blender or food processor)

1 Sauté the vegetables: Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and warm the coconut oil. Add the carrot, onion, and celery and sauté for 5 to 7 minutes until the onions start to become translucent. Stir often to avoid browning.
Add the ginger, garlic, and bay leaves and sauté for another couple of minutes.
2 Combine the sautéed veggies, pumpkin puree, coconut milk, vegetable broth, and salt in a 3-quart or larger slow cooker. Cook on low for 4 1/2 hours or on high for 3 hours.
3 Remove bay leaves and use an immersion blender to purée the soup until very smooth. Alternatively, puree the soup in a blender or food processor. Add extra stock if you'd like a thinner soup. Taste and add more salt if needed.
4 To serve: I like to sprinkle on some hot Thai chili powder, fresh cilantro, and swirl in some coconut milk yogurt.
