A wonderful pumpkin soup recipe that holds the warming flavors needed to thaw that Winter chill. The blend of pumpkin, potato, and vegetable stock creates a thick consistency that holds a fragrant mix of tastes and flavors.
- 4 white potatoes (skinned and chopped)
- 2 tablespoons cannabis-infused coconut oil
- 3 large carrots (sliced)
- 3 celery stalks (sliced)
- 1 small red onion (roughly chopped)
- 5 cloves of garlic (finely minced)
- 2 cups organic pumpkin puree
- 1 cup organic coconut milk
- 4 cups organic vegetable broth
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- salt and black pepper to taste
- 1 large dutch oven
- Optional garnishes: fresh sage leaves, pumpkin seeds, etc.
- To begin, thoroughly wash the potatoes, carrots, and celery.
- Skin the potatoes using a vegetable peeler and then proceed to chop them into medium-sized chunks.
- Next, chop the red onion and slice the carrots and celery stalks.
- After, melt 2 tablespoons of cannabis-infused coconut oil in a large dutch oven, on the stove, over medium heat.
- Place the potato chunks and chopped onion into the dutch oven containing the melted coconut oil.
- Allow the potatoes and onions to cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring once throughout the process.
- Proceed to add the sliced carrots and celery to the dutch oven, stirring well to incorporate everything.
- Let these veggies cook for an additional 4-5 minutes.
- Then, add the minced garlic and season the vegetable medley with a sprinkle of salt and black pepper. Stir all the ingredients well and continue to cook until the garlic becomes fragrant (roughly 3 minutes).
- After the vegetables begin to brown and become tender, add the remaining ingredients (canned pumpkin, coconut milk, vegetable broth, ground nutmeg).
- Turn up the heat (medium-high) until the soup begins to boil.
- Reduce the heat to a simmer and continue to cook the soup until the potatoes are fork-tender.
- Next, using a hand-held immersion blender, blend the contents of the soup until they reach the desired consistency.
- A standard counter-top blender is another option, just simply blend the soup in batches until the entire batch is blended smooth.
- Serve immediately and enjoy.
