Cooking pumpkin sous vide helps to preserve the nutrients — unlike aggressive cooking methods such as boiling or baking. This soup is creamy and filling, yet healthy and nutritious. That sounds like a win-win to me. Curry powder and coriander seeds give the soup a delectable taste without being too overpowering. The beetroots add a lovely element of crunch and burst of color, while the shredded coconut complements the coconut milk in the soup.

Ingredients for 4

  • 1 1/2 pounds pumpkin (about 1/2 medium), peeled and sliced into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 (14-ounce) can (400 mL) coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds, ground
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 red beet, peeled and very thinly sliced
  • 8 teaspoons unsweetened shredded coconut
