Pumpkin Soup

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

If there is one vegetable that I am impressed beyond words, or that offers so many health benefits, it is a pumpkin. It t does not have a taste of it's own, you could cook it in so many different ways. You could make  unlimited number of desserts, soups, curries, shakes etc. All of those you are now going to see them in posts soon in shaa Allah.

This post will show you how to whip up a batch of pumpkin soup with very few ingredients. You would never tell it is made with pumpkin if you were not told. Many people think pumpkins are tasteless. Yes they are but because of their nutritional benefits, you have to eat them, people! Read on and see for yourself how easy it is.

Ingredients:

 Pumpkin-2 cups grated
 Salt- to taste
Turmeric Powder-1/2 tsp
 Ground Pepper -to taste
 Coconut milk-12 ozs ( a cup and a half)
 Onions-1/2 sliced
 Garlic-2-3 cubed
 Oil-a tbs
Cumin Seeds-1 tsp
Curry leaves-a few

Directions:

1. Heat oil in a pan and add the sliced onions and saute until they turn translucent.

2. Add the chopped garlic and stir until it turns slightly brown and turn fragrant.

3. Put in the cumin seeds along with the curry leaves and stir briefly.

4. To the pan add the grated pumpkin along with salt, turmeric powder and cook on medium heat with the lid on, until they soften a little bit.

5. Pour in the coconut milk and increase the heat to a high until the mixture comes to a boil.

6. At this point, turn off the stove and allow it to cool a little bit.

7. Use an immersion blender and blend the pumpkin mixture until smooth.

8. Pour into serving bowls and drizzle some coconut milk on the top and sprinkle some ground pepper and serve hot.

9. Enjoy!

  1. MashaAllah, that sounds so easy and delicious! I am so glad it's Autumn because pumpkins are in abundance right now. I personally love all kinds of squash (healthy) and eat them mostly roasted, because had a hard time making tasty soup :) but will give this recipe one a shot, in sha Allah! All your food is amazing and I have no doubt, this will be no different. Thank you for this post habibty.

  2. That soup looks so tempting... I have seen my sister and parents going to plucking some huge pumpkins from the farm recently... dear, please keep your pictures a bit big - either in large or x-large so that it becomes more visible... :)
