Veggies & Fruit

  • 1 medium sugar pumpkin, or large butternut squash, about 2 lb
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced, about 1.5 cups
  • 1 large apple, I love honeycrisps or substitute a large ripe pear


  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk, 8 oz


  • vegetable broth, start with 1 cup
  • 1 thumb of ginger root, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Pinch of ground cardamom
  • Pinch of cayenne or hot curry powder
  • Pinch of salt


  • pumpkin seeds
  • drizzle of coconut milk
  • fresh thyme leaves


  • On a parchment lined baking sheet, roast the squash halves brushed with oil, salt, and pepper at 375°F for 35-45 minutes, or until very soft. Let cool for 15 minutes or so, then scoop out the squash. Set aside.
  • In a heavy bottomed soup pot, sauté the onions and apples for a few minutes over low heat, until fragrant and softened.
  • Add squash, sautéed apples and onions, coconut milk, and seasonings to a blender.
  • Return to pot and gently heat over low heat, but do not boil, as the coconut milk is delicate and should not be overheated.
  • Season to a taste, and garnish with a drizzle of coconut milk, pumpkin seeds, and fresh thyme leaves.

  1. Doesnt the milk count as a protein?

    • Coconut milk is usually counted as a fat, if you’re using other plant-milk or dairy milk it’s usually counted as a protein. It’s pretty arbitrary, count it as you like! ☺️

    Hi Katie are you able to give an approx weight for the fruits and veggies? I’m horrible at guessing 😁

    • Katie Gates

      I don’t have great intuition about veggie weight either, you can use as much as you have. This soup is very forgiving! You won’t ruin it. 🙂
