Immunity Boosting Pumpkin, Ginger & Turmeric Soup

“Pumpkin soup has been a family staple since as long as i can remember, my mum even used to serve it back in the pumpkin shells on special occasions”

This soup makes use of the bountiful supply of fresh turmeric I always get at this time of year, if you love turmeric as well sign up for my email list here as I have a few other easy one pot turmeric recipes to share over the next few week!


Like Turmeric, ginger has so many amazing proven health properties that I try to include both fresh and dried in my weekly meal plans. Its great at helping muscle recovery and joint problems so its especially good for those who live and active lifestyle!



Immunity Boosting Pumpkin, Ginger & Tumeric Soup


The Ingredients

  • 250g of Butternut Pumpkin Cubed

  • 200g of Potato Peeled and Cubed

  • 1 Medium Brown Onion Diced

  • 1 Clove of Finely Chopped Garlic

  • Teaspoon Ground Turmeric

  • Teaspoon Ground Ginger

  • 1 Tablespoon of Fresh Grated Turmeric

  • 1 Tablespoon of Fresh Grated Ginger

  • 2 Cups of Vegan Stock

  • 1 Cup of Coconut Milk ~ reserve the rest from the tin to swirl on top before serving

  • 1 Bunch of Fresh Coriander

  • Salt and Pepper to Serve


The Method – Could it get any simpler?

  1. In a large 4 Litre Pot add a splash of oil & saute onion till translucent, add garlic

  2. Stir in powdered spices and cook gently to release aromatics

  3. Add freshly grated turmeric and ginger, saute gently.

  4. Toss in the cubed potato and pumpkin, add stock and allow to simmer

  5. Once root vegetables are soft mash until smooth and add coconut milk

  6. Simmer gently for 3 minutes

  7. If you want it smoother blend before serving, we use the Blendoo USB blender in the van but any usb blender such as this one from Amazon will work

  8. Roughly chop the coriander and place on top with a swirl of coconut cream and some freshly ground pepper to serve


Make it Incredible!

I like to add a little bit if fresh or dried chilli to mine before serving but you could also add some cooked quinoa to up the protein quotient and make it more filling or some hemp seeds on top for a protein filled crunch!


You can also sub the potato for sweet potato or more pumpkin if you like

This recipe will serve two large bowls but as with all my recipes you can alter the quantities of everything to your own taste. this is not a sponsored post, all products mentioned are used because I LOVE them!

Happy Creating!
