  • 1 cup pumpkin mashed or pureed
  • 1 cup baby carrots or chopped carrots
  • ¼ cup roghly chopped onions
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 serrano pepper
  • 1 garlic clove (finely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoon Red curry paste (Thai, vegan)
  • 1 cup coconut milk (I used light)
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast (Optional)
  • 10 pieces cashew nuts
  • Salt to taste
  • Cilantro and chopped nuts to garnish


Prep the Veggies:

  • Cut the veggies and keep ready.
  • I have taken whole baby carrots, diced tomatoes, chopped onions(either red or white), chopped garlic and Serrano pepper.
  • I didn’t have a fresh pumpkin. That’s why I used this pureed pumpkin in my recipe.
  • If using fresh pumpkin, take two cups of pumpkin chunks. (cut into medium sized pieces.)

Step-2: Sauté:

  • Add a teaspoon of any oil of your choice and sauté the veggies for a few minutes.
  • Add cashews and pumpkin puree.
  • Cover and cook for a few minutes.
  • As the tomatoes start to lose water, add 2 tablespoon of red curry paste and a cup of water or veggie broth.
  • Simmer for 5-7 minutes.

Step-3: Add coconut milk:

  • To the simmering vegetables in broth, add a cup of coconut milk.
  • Stir well, add salt and ¼ cup of nutritional yeast.
  • Turn the heat off.
  • Allow the mixture to cool.

Step-4: Blend:

  • Take all the ingredients in a high-speed blender.
  • Blend to make a super-smooth and creamy puree.
  • Pour the mixture back to the pan and adjust salt.
  • If you want a thinner consistency, add more water or coconut milk.
  • Bring the mixture to boil.

Step-4: Serve:

  • Add chopped cilantro and roasted peanuts on top.
  • Serve the soup warm.

Instant Pot Method:

  • Set the instant pot to the saute mode. Add oil and wait for a minute till the oil is warm enough.
