Servings: 4 servings
- 1 sugar pumpkin
- 1 large carrot diced
- 2 small apples, chopped (100 grams each)
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1" ginger, chopped (2 1/2 teaspoons chopped ginger)
- 1 small red onion chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
- 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- salt to taste
- 1 cups vegetable broth (or water)
- 1/2 cup milk (or coconut milk)
Cut your sugar pumpkin into 2 halves. Scoop out the seeds and guts.
Brush little oil on top and place the pumpkin onto a baking sheet with the cut side facing down.
Roast at 400 F degrees for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and let the pumpkin cool down a bit. Then peel off the skin and scoop out the flesh. Set aside.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a pot on medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add chopped onion and ginger and saute for 2 minutes.
Add the chopped apple and diced carrots and mix. Also add the roasted pumpkin.
Now add nutmeg, cardamom powder, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika salt and black pepper.
Cover the pan and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes.
Add vegetable broth or water, cover and cook for another 5 minutes or till carrot and apple soften.
Using your immersion blender, blend the mixture to get a smooth consistency. In case you don't have a immersion blender, let the mixture cool down a bit and then puree using your regular blender.
Add milk (or coconut milk if vegan) and let the soup simmer for 2 more minutes. Check and adjust salt at this point.
Pour the soup into serving bowls and serve immediately. Garnish them with some roasted pumpkin seeds.
