Roasted Pumpkin & Coconut Soup for #SundaySupper

Oct 7, 2012 by

Its Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and my family and I are having a great time celebrating family, birthdays and friendships. We have so much to be thankful for!

Earlier this week while I was preparing for the weekend meals, I picked up some pumpkin…without knowing what I was going to make with it. I came across this recipe and I was sold! I don’t make soup very often but I surprised myself with this one. It was simple, awesome and perfect for #SundaySupper. This weeks #SundaySupper theme is All Things Orange, showcasing some wonderful Autumn recipes from some of our fabulous food bloggers. Look out for a wonderful selection of recipes using ingredients like pumpkin, sweet potatoes and butternut squash, to name a few. I’m so excited to see all the wonderful creations! This is my first season actually cooking with pumpkin so I know I’m going to be inspired. This is truly my favourite season!

This weeks host is Pam from The Meltaways! As always, please be sure you join us on Twitter throughout the day for #SundaySupper. We’ll be meeting up at 7:00 pm EST for our weekly #SundaySupper live chat where we’ll talk about our favourite recipes featuring our favourite fall colour. All you have to do is follow the #SundaySupper hashtag, or you can follow us through TweetChat. We’d also love to feature your recipes on our #SundaySupper Pinterest board and share them with all of our followers, too.

I hope my Mother is reading this post. She will be pleasantly surprised to know that I actually cut up and roasted pumpkin. *gasp* Ok so I didn’t do all the work. I bought a piece of pumpkin weighing about a kilogram. I removed the skin, chopped it into cubes, then roasted it. Originally, I was going to use the canned pumpkin puree but I really wanted to cook with the real thing. It may have taken me a few minutes longer to prepare, but I believe it was worth it. The flavour says it all!

Notes

I picked up this piece of pumpkin at the Asian supermarket. It happened to be labelled “Jamaican Pumpkin” so that I would pick it up. I prefer buying pumpkin pre-cut anyway. Less chance of me wasting it. This portion was just right for what I needed it for.

I liked the simplicity of this recipe. I loved the use of coconut oil as well as coconut milk. This soup is just bursting with goodness. I really missed the presence of chicken or even yellow yams and dumplings in my soup. Perhaps that addition will be made after my next visit to the Asian supermarket.

This could be the perfect appetizer for an Autumn dinner, and a great choice for entertaining.

A warm crusty bread, like Ciabatta is a lovely compliment to this soup.

  3. Lovely presentation and gorgeous photos. This one sounds like a keeper!

  4. Pumpkin and coconut sound like a great combination! Your soup looks absolutely beautiful – love the presentation!

  5. A wonderful soup to share with your family! Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. I want the soup AND that gorgeous bowl! Simply divine, Lyn!

  7. Happy Thanksgiving!!! I also will be celebrating the holiday today because I am married to a Canadian and my daughter is also Canadian. This will be the perfect starter for your Thanksgiving celebration. LOVE IT!!!!

  8. Oh my, I really need to make this! It looks and sounds wonderful!

  9. Bea

    This sounds so good! We love soup, and coconut….

  10. I’ve not seen a Jamaican pumpkin before, but I’ll bet it’s good! Once I started making my own pumpkin puree, I never went back to the canned stuff–the difference is amazing!

    • Generally, I would make my own puree. For a few reasons, I’ve had to depend on canned items. Its just easier for the moment. I guess I’ll use the canned pumpkin for my baking. I agree that there’s nothing like making it yourself!

  11. I have got to try this combination of coconut and pumpkin it looks so fantastic!!

  12. Your photography just blows me away every time. And those bowls are spectacular and I wish I had some. I am absolutely sure the soup in the bowls is divine too.

  13. Your photos are so stunning! Makes me want to dive right in to that bowl of soup.

  14. Love the idea of pairing pumpkin and coconut! I’m not a fan of soup either, but after today, I might just change my mind ;)

  15. We must have been sharing a brain this week with the pureed orange veg and coconut! Sounds wonderful!

  16. Oh yum! Pumpkin and coconut together. I think I have everything necessary to make this soup except I can’t find any cooking pumpkins in my store. All they have are the jack-o-lantern style pumpkins. (Boo!) Can’t wait to try this!

    • Keep looking! It has to be out there…somewhere! Not even the canned kind? I hope you do get to find pumpkin. I would try this soup with sweet potato as a good substitution.

  17. Pumpkin and coconut sound like they would make such a wonderful flavor combination! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  18. What gorgeous bowls!!!! I love your photos, and the recipe sounds fabulous with the coconut flavors and pumpkin. It’s just perfect – so I’m pinning it right now :-)

  19. Love the flavor combination in this soup! It sounds wonderful.

  20. Stephanie Zielinski

    Roasting the pumpkin, fantastic! Can’t wait to try.

  21. I love how inviting this looks. And can I just say the presentation is gorgeous. Love the bowl.

  22. Personally I think fresh pumpkin is always worth it because we don’t like tinned pumpkin, although you can’t even buy it here in the UK any way. This soup look so tasty, perfect for this cold wet weather we are having

  23. The combination of Pumpkin and Coconut has me completely drooling. I love the idea of those two flavors together. Sounds absolutely delicious!

  24. Not only is the soup gorgeous but the bowl is beautiful … Love it :-)

  25. What a beautiful, silky smooth soup. And a gorgeous picture, too! Your table setting looks like it’s right from a fancy, schmancy restaurant!

  26. Happy Thanksgiving, Lyn! I’m enjoying my day off over here in Vancouver. Wish I had some of this delicious soup to enjoy today – it sounds amazing! And I love the bowl you’re using – it’s gorgeous. I also never make soup, at least not the kind where you have to hack apart a giant gourd and puree the contents. This week’s Sunday Supper is making me want to give it a try.

    • Thanks, Nancy! Hope you’re having a lovely long weekend :-) Yeah, give it a try…its not like you have to put in the muscle weekly :-) You’ll be so happy you did!

  27. Pumkin & coconut milk is a winning combo ! Love this :)and I reallllly love the bowl !

  28. Liz

    What a stunning and delectable bowl of soup! I have china envy…such a gorgeous bowl, too!!!! Great #Sunday Supper dish, Lyn!

  29. What a gorgeous soup – looks so silky and smooth!

  30. Not only must I try this soup… I want those bowls! Where did you find them?

  31. Wow this looks amazing. Such beautiful photography as well

  32. This look amazing. I shall try to bake the pumpkin before hand. I love all your pictures and also the wonderful soup bowl :-)

  33. Happy thanksgiving to my dear friend, what an incredible dish to celebrate with :D

  34. Wow, Lyn I love your soup and the bowl you served it in!!Its absolutely beautiful.Love the warm spices and coconut oil in there.This is something I would love to try :)

  35. Hi Lyn!

    love the ingredients of your pumpkin soup especially the spices and the coconut aroma. That could be a Indian dish, you know that? =D

    I saw the #sundaysupper for a while now. Is there a way to participate Lyn? any idea? I d love to take part! =)

    • Hi Helene!!! Really!!!??? I would have never thought however, there are some caribbean ingredients that are similar to indian cuisine :-) I’ll get you in touch with Isabel! She’s the wonderful driving force behind #SundaySupper!

  36. Gorgeous soup!! And I absolutely love all of your photos and your bowls! OMG, so beautiful! :)

  37. What a gorgeous bowl of soup, Lyn! Absolutely love the combination of pumpkin and coconut!

  38. I would love a big pot of that soup and a whole roll of some crusty bread. It screams fall too and I love the fall spices! Your soup looks gorgeous!

  39. i often make coconut milk & sweet potato soup but roasted pumpkin sounds like a divine variation – thanks for the inspiration!!

  41. I love this recipe.
    I like change my italian flavoir.
    Thank you for the idea.
    Bye from Italy

  42. That’s a unique pumpkin! The green rind and brightly colored flesh make me think of a watermelon! I think the closest thing I’ve seen here locally are acorn squash, which I have yet to actually purchase.

    The soup looks delish!

  43. This soup looks so simple and delicious! I’ve recently stopped eating dairy so I love that this is dairy free but still looks so creamy!

  44. This sounds amazing! I know that roasting a pumpkin really brings out the flavor but I have yet to try it in a soup. Can’t wait to try your recipe!
