Sweet Potato, Pumpkin, Turmeric, and Ginger Soup Recipe

- 1 medium-sized sweet potato, peeled and cubed
- 1 cup of pumpkin, peeled and cubed
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon of grated fresh ginger
- 1 tablespoon of grated fresh turmeric
- 4 cups of vegetable or chicken broth
- 1 can of coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Optional toppings: roasted pumpkin seeds, croutons, chopped herbs


1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté until the onion is translucent, about 3-5 minutes.

2. Add the cubed sweet potato and pumpkin to the pot and stir to combine. Cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are slightly softened.

3. Add the grated ginger and turmeric to the pot and stir to combine. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.

4. Pour in the vegetable or chicken broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the sweet potato and pumpkin are tender.

5. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until smooth. Alternatively, transfer the soup to a blender and puree until smooth, being careful not to fill the blender more than halfway to avoid hot liquid splashing out.

6. Return the soup to the pot and stir in the can of coconut milk. Cook for an additional 5 minutes or until heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

7. Serve hot with your favorite toppings, such as roasted pumpkin seeds, croutons, or chopped herbs.
