I can’t believe it’s November. We finally had our first real cool night, so that is making it a little more believable that it’s not summer anymore… but this year is just flying by! I’m okay with that if it means more pumpkin in my life.
I like sweet pumpkin treats, but I like savory even more and my Creamy Coconut Pumpkin Soup is amazingly easy to make and not at all sweet… but it’s still a treat!
My mom has been making her famous pumpkin soup for years and we look forward to enjoying it each year. This year I decided to make my own take on it and add a little tropical flair to it. It turned out just as I hoped it would and it’s even vegan, paleo, and still creamy. The coconut adds so much depth to the soup and under tones of a tropical vacation. It also just tastes good. Ever since I started cooking and baking more with coconut oil my whole family has decided they love the taste of coconut too… so I had a feeling this would be a big hit with them and I was right!
I like to eat this soup warmed up the day after I make it because the flavors have more time to develop. My oldest loves to eat it cold as a chilled soup the next day or as soon as it’s cooled off. Either way it’s a keeper and will now have a permanent place in our fall meal lineup.
