Coconut roasted pumpkin and apple soup recipe

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.

Ingredients








What to do

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.
