Step 1

Remove the roots and stalky ends from the cilantro. Wash the leaves and dry in a salad spinner or paper towel before roughly chopping. Wash the roots and stalks well to remove any dirt clinging to the roots. Shake off any water and finely chop.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat before adding the onion and garlic. Cook until the onion becomes translucent.

Step 3

Add the ginger, lemongrass and coriander roots and stalks. Cook until the stalks become soft before adding the pumpkin.

Step 4

Toss the pumpkin in the oil and cook for 5 minutes. Add the vegetable stock and bring to a boil before reducing the heat to lower. Cook for 30 minutes or until the pumpkin is tender. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

Step 5

Pour the soup into a blender and blend until smooth. Add most of the chopped cilantro leaves reserving some to garnish the soup. Blend until the soup is speckled with flecks of green.

Step 6

Return to a clean saucepan and add the coconut milk. Add half the milk, reserving the rest for garnish. Serve with shaved coconut, the remaining cilantro leaves.

To make 4 cups of organic vegetable stock combine 3 tsp Cook’s Delight® organic vegetable stock base with 4 cups of boiling water.
