Anti-inflammatory through the addition of ginger and turmeric, this soup is truly warming and satisfying.

Serves 5-6


  • 1.2 kg pumpkin (such as Jap), peeled and diced
  • 300 g sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 medium brown onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or ghee [P]
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric, finely grated
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 800ml filtered water, chicken or vegetable stock
  • 3-4 tablespoons tamari [P]
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • Himalayan or Celtic sea salt


  1. On medium to low heat, sauté onion in coconut oil or ghee for approximately 10 minutes, or until soft.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to the boil. Once boiling, lower heat and simmer with lid on for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Once cooked, blend soup till creamy using a stick blender. Season with salt and pepper, tamari and cayenne pepper. Mix and serve.
  4. Note: If you find it challenging or overly time-consuming to skin the pumpkin you can roast the pieces in the oven till soft. Once cooked, remove the skin and use the flesh.
