Ginger and Pumpkin Soup
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 large brown onion
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp fresh grated turmeric
- 3 tbsp fresh grated ginger
- 1.5 kg cubed pumpkin, roughly cut
- 6 large carrots, peeled and roughly cut
- 2 tbs almond butter
- 1 can coconut cream
- 30g Nutraorganics vegetable Broth
In a large deep pot, add olive oil, onion, turmeric, garlic and ginger and fry for 10mins.
Add in the pumpkin, carrots, almond butter, coconut cream and vegetable stock.
Cook on a low heat for 40mins, stirring occasionally.
Let the soup cool down and use a stick blender to blitz until smooth.
Black Sesame Cracker:
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup roasted black sesame seeds
- 1/2 cup flaxseed
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 cup water
In a bowl mix all ingredients together and spread out on a lined baking tray, approx 5mm thick. Let it sit for 1-2 hours - you want all the water to be soaked up.
Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees. Cut the crackers before baking and bake for 1-1.5hrs or until completely crispy.
Sprinkle sea salt on top
