Vegan Thai Pumpkin Soup

Ingredients:
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp vegan Thai red or yellow curry paste
1 Tbsp peeled minced fresh ginger
1 (3-inch) stalk lemongrass, bruised
2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth, plus more to thin as needed
1 (15 oz) can pure pumpkin puree or 2 cups fresh pumpkin puree
2 Tbsp tamari or soy sauce
1 (14 oz) can coconut milk, 1 Tbsp reserved for garnish
2 Tbsp lime juice, plus more for serving
1/3 cup shredded Thai basil or fresh cilantro
3 red Thai chilis, sliced or minced

Directions
1. In a large pot, heat coconut oil and sesame oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add onion, garlic, curry paste, ginger and lemongrass, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until onions are softened, about 10 minutes.

2. Add broth, pumpkin and tamari or soy sauce. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes. Remove lid and discard lemongrass. Stir in coconut milk and lime juice. Using an immersion blender, puree soup until smooth, or transfer to a blender and puree soup in batches. If soup is too thick for your preference, thin with additional broth until desired consistency.

3. Reheat soup over low heat, ladle into bowls, swirl over reserved coconut milk and top with basil or cilantro and chili. Serve with additional lime juice.

Power Up your 2019 with these Power Bowl Recipes

~ POWER BOWL RECIPES ~ Plant Based Power Bowls are a great way to use up leftovers or make a full week's meals by preparing the ingredients separately then mixing and matching them throughout the week.
I recommend making 2 grains, 2 sauces, having lots of chopped raw veggies and spinach/kale/cabbage as well having 2 proteins (beans, tofu, hummus) on hand to get a week's worth of meals.
