Spiced Pumpkin Coconut Soup

Updated: Feb 5, 2021

Make this super simple, autumn-worthy Spiced Pumpkin Coconut Soup to warm up this autumn!

With Autumn’s cooler weather, and celebrations of Sukkot underway, there’s no better time to start cooking with seasonal pumpkin. Sukkot is known as the “Harvest Holiday”, but it is much more than just a lulav and etrog. While Sukkot doesn’t have it’s own special dish to celebrate with, because of the time of year, Sukkot menus often seasonal fruits and vegetables that signify the harvest theme. I’ve made the most of cooler weather with this pumpkin soup packed with warming spices. This rich, dairy free pareve soup is packed with rich coconut milk, making it the perfect way to warm up!
