Ingredients

  • 1/2 butternut squash

  • 2 carrots

  • 2 red yellow peppers

  • 1 onion

  • 2 jalapeño peppers

  • 6 cloves of garlic

  • Vegetable stock

  • 1 tsp cumin powder

  • 1 tsp paprika powder

  • 200 ml coconut milk

  • Pepper and salt

  • Seeds from the pumpkin *

Preparation

Cut all the vegetables into pieces and put it together with the garlic cloves on a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes at 180 degrees and turn the vegetables halfway through.

Put all the vegetables in a large pan and add 1 liter of vegetable stock and the coconut milk. Bring to a boil and check with a fork if the vegetable is soft enough to blend. Blend with a hand blender until all pieces are out and a smooth soup is formed. Add water if you want the soup to be thinner.

Serve in a deep plate or bowl and garnish with a little coconut milk and pumpkin seeds*. These are the seeds from the butternut squash that you can clean and bake in the oven with a little olive oil, pepper and salt.
