Paleo Pumpkin Soup
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can of pumpkin puree (or 15 oz of homemade pumpkin puree)
  • 1 can of coconut milk (13.5 oz)
  • 4 tbsp butter (or coconut oil for no dairy)
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper, as desired by the way, you don’t have to use canned pumpkin puree for this recipe (I was just trying to keep things simple and had an organic can of pumpkin puree at the time), you can make your own pumpkin puree if you would like!  
  • Here’s how to make your own.
  • Instructions.  Heat up a large saucepan and start melting your butter (or coconut oil if you opted for 100% dairy free version).

4.  Once the soup is boiling, lower the heat (to low) and add the pumpkin puree, coconut milk, and the spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice).  Stir well. 
5.  Cook for another 5 minutes and you should be set!
6.  For an extra touch of prettiness, after you transfer the soup in to individual bowls, I poured some coconut milk on a spoon and drizzled it over the soup along with some more ground pepper!
I love fall and all of its glorious, ever-changing colors and smells as it morphs from Summer's heat to Winter's cool.  The fresh, cool breeze wafting into my window at night makes my heart yearn for the cozy, comfortable feeling of a cup of smooth, sweet, homemade, hot chocolate and this recipe was absolutely amazing. I came across it at The Ultimate Paleo think the thing that makes it amazing is the blend of fall spices added to the coconut milk, honey and water base.  The subtle taste of star anise gives it such a unique flavor, but it's sooo good.  I hope you will try it and if you try it I hope you love it as much as I do.  This one is a definite keep for me and the start of a new Fall tradition.
