½ tablespoon ground coriander

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

1 teaspoon himalayan salt

500ml chicken bone broth or water

1 Cup coconut cream

Optional: Cooked L’Authentique Sausages sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 180 and prepare a large baking sheet with baking paper

  2. Peel and cube pumpkin into 4cm chunks and add to the baking tray. Take 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil and rub pumpkin all over with the oil (don’t worry it is really good for your skin). Roast pumpkin in oven for 25 minutes or until lightly brown and caramelized. Remove from oven and set aside.

  3. In a large soup pot, melt remaining Tablespoon of coconut oil and add in the aromatics: chopped onion, garlic, ginger, chilli, and coriander stalks. Gently fry these together over low to medium heat for a few minutes and then add in the turmeric, cumin, pepper and ground coriander. Stir and fry for another minute or two. Add in the broth, water and fresh coriander and roasted pumpkin. Add salt and bring to a gentle simmer and continue cooking for 25 minutes with the lid on.

  4. After 25 minutes, add the coconut cream and stir to combine. Turn off the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes. Puree the soup either with a hand held stick blender or in batches in a stand up blender. You want your soup to be as smooth as possible.

  5. Before serving, adjust salt, pepper and add chili flakes for more heat if desired. Serve warm in bowls with chopped fresh coriander on top. Or swirl in more coconut cream.
