Pumpkin Soup with Sage and Coconut milk is a creamy roasted pumpkin puree flavoured with sage and coconut milk. Winters are on roll and calls for soother to keep one’s body warm and comfortable. Warm soups are one of them. How could one forget to play with pumpkin for a creation in the kitchen during fall. Agree! pumpkins are bland and thats the beauty of it as it picks up any flavour beautifully to mingle with and get dressed up in a new form. One such form is this simple hearty herbed soup with coconut milk, an ideal fall light meal. I served this delicious rich soup with toasted garlic butter ciabatta and trust me it was marvellous. The best part is my fussy eater sunny boy loved it much. Do try it, am absolutely sure, you all will love it. Let’s get started with how to make it…
