This recipe is full of veggies and can be made vegan and vegetarian depending on your choice of stock.

Ingredients You’ll Need (to serve 2):
-500g butternut pumpkin, chopped
-1 large carrot, chopped
-1 red onion, diced
-250ml coconut cream
-1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
-1 garlic clove, chopped

-2 chicken or vegetable stock cubes
-1 tbsp coconut oil
-salt & pepper
- Your choice of coriander, lime, fresh chilli, coconut cream and toasted pumpkin seeds or pepitas to garnish.

-In a large saucepan, heat up the coconut oil and saute the onion, garlic, ginger and chilli flakes until the onions are softened.
-Add in the chopped butternut pumpkin and carrot and sauté for a further 3 minutes.
-Add the can of coconut cream, stock cubes and enough boiling water to just cover the vegetables.
-Cook on medium heat until the vegetables are soft and blendable.
-Turn off the heat and blend using a blender or a stick blender. Be careful here as it will be very hot! Be sure not to splash any soup on yourself!
-Serve with toppings of choice in your favourite Ecology bowls. We have used a drizzle of coconut cream, fresh chilli, lime and toasted pumpkin seeds for a bit of crunch and some extra flavour. Miranda used her stoneware Ecology Dawn Blossom Bowls, adding a touch of organic shape and unique detail to her dinner.
