This pumpkin lentil soup with coconut milk is an ideal fall meal. It tastes creamy, spicy and fruity. In addition, the soup is vegan, healthy and filling. It is easy and quick to make with few ingredients. You can find a detailed pumpkin lentil soup recipe with the exact quantities and step-by-step instructions here at the very bottom.
As stew or pureed
I made the pumpkin lentil soup with whole vegetable chunks. Lentils were also not pureed. So it is similar to a stew, just like the vegetarian borscht or the vegan solyanka.
If you prefer to have a fine cream soup, you can puree all the ingredients, similar to the creamy vegetable soup. After the vegetables and lentils are cooked, take the soup off the heat and puree it. Then add coconut milk and bring the creamy soup to a boil.
You can modify this pumpkin lentil soup recipe to suit your taste. Use only the vegetables you like, similar to the cauliflower curry recipe. For example, omit bell peppers and use more carrots instead. Or add strained tomatoes to the soup.
In addition, you can adjust the amount of ginger and garlic as you like.
If you like the soup more liquid, use more vegetable broth, similar to the vegan ramen soup. If you want it to be even creamier, use more coconut milk.
