500g pumpkin – seeded and cubed

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in large pot.
Add chopped onion and garlic, cook until just see through or browned, before adding curry paste and cook until fragrant.
Add pumpkin then cover with vegetable stock, aproximately 4 cups, but just enough to cover, then bring to the boil. Adding too much liquid can make soup too watery, so add just enough. Once brought to the boil, reduce heat to simmer until pumpkin is very soft.
Blend in food processor or hand held blender until smooth. Add 1/2 a can of organic coconut cream and stir through.
Serve and sprinkle with coriander.
