Thai Pumpkin Soup

(Serves: 6-8)
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
  • 2 cups diced yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (3 cloves)
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh lemongrass stems
  • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh kaffir lime leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 6 cups Massel vegetable or chicken-flavored broth
  • 1 teaspoon Massel vegetable seasoning powder
  • 2 lb/7 cups peeled and cubed butternut squash or Japanese pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed cilantro roots or stems (1 bunch)
  • 2 tablespoons wheat-free tamari
  • 1 (13.5oz) can full-fat coconut milk (shake, then pour)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice, plus more to serve
  • Fresh cilantro leaves, to serve
Method
  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm the coconut oil, and sauté the onion and garlic for about 5 minutes, until the onions are soft and translucent. Bring the heat down to low, and add the tomato paste, lemongrass, ginger, kaffir lime leaves, and red pepper flakes, and sauté for another minute until well combined and fragrant.
  2. Add the broth, seasoning powder, squash, cilantro roots, and tamari, increase the heat to high, and bring just to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium, and simmer for about 30 minutes, until the squash is fork tender.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat, and allow the soup to cool slightly; stir in the coconut milk and lime juice.
  4. Pour the soup into your blender in batches, and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until smooth and creamy.
  5. Return the soup to the saucepan, and warm it over low heat. Season to taste.
  6. To serve, ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with cilantro leaves, and pass lime juice at the table.
