Coconut roasted pumpkin and apple soup recipe

be. Warm Up Recipe Book — Posted 26/06/15

A hearty, belly-warming soup to rejuvenate and nourish.

In winter it’s a good idea to incorporate more ‘grounding’ foods into your diet. Think root vegetables such as carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes and parsnip – typically this is what our bodies crave.


1 kg pumpkin chopped into smallish pieces

2 apples, peeled and chopped roughly, quartered would be fine (my preference if for a sweeter style of apple)

1 litre of organic or home made additive free vegetable or chicken stock

1 brown onion, peeled and cut into quarters or 6ths

2 garlic cloves

1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

Sea salt and pepper, to taste


1. Preheat oven to 200°C. 

2. Place pumpkin, apple, onion and (unpeeled) garlic into a bowl and drizzle with coconut oil, give it all a good shake or stir. Spread onto a baking tray and place in the oven for 15 minutes. 

3. Remove from oven and flip the vegetables and apples over. Remove the garlic if it is burning and/or cooked. Return to the oven for a further 15 minutes. 

4. Remove from oven, ensuring the pumpkin is tender. Place in a large saucepan with the stock and salt and pepper, to taste. Add your (now peeled) garlic. Bring to the boil and turn down to a simmer for ten minutes. 

5. Finally, pour the soup into a blender and combine until smooth. Season to taste.

6. Serve with crusty bread, grated apple and a dollop of Greek yoghurt.
