Coconut Oil: Nature’s Perfect Ingredient
Serves
4

While many people think of soup as a winter comfort, this refreshing blend is delicious all year round. I love its unique coconut water twist, which makes the soup even more nourishing and hydrating. I sometimes sprinkle over unsweetened desiccated coconut for extra sweetness, and a spoonful of flavoured oil adds flavour. All in all, this is the perfect meal to put a spring in your step and fight any weekday blues.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 tablespoon lucy bee coconut oil
400g carrots, peeled and chopped
1/2 butternut squash, peeled, deseeded and chopped
1 white onion, chopped
2.5cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 green chilli, deseeded and sliced
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
750ml hot vegetable stock
500ml coconut water
1 tablespoon lime juice
roasted pumpkin seeds or greek yoghurt, to garnish (optional)

Method

  1. Melt the coconut oil in a pan over a gentle heat, then add the carrots, squash and onion and cook until golden and slightly softened. Add the ginger, garlic and chilli, and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the spices, then pour in the stock and simmer for 15–20 minutes, until the vegetables are soft. Tip into a blender and blitz until smooth.
  3. Pour the soup back into the pan and add enough coconut water to bring it to your desired consistency. Gently heat, then simmer for 2–3 minutes. Ladle into bowls, squeeze over the lime juice and top with pumpkin seeds or yoghurt, if using.
