BarBar Pumpkin Soup-erb

Prep Time

15 min

Prep Notes

Thick, smooth, sweet, no dairy, no blending, with amaranth, filling and grounding dinner.

Great use for (butternut) squash in season around September and further.

Cooking Time

30 min


about 2l pot


  • 1 onion

  • 1 pumpkin (butternut, hokaido…)

  • 2 potatoes

  • Oil to generously coat your pot (raw coconut or olive oil, mix of both…)

  • 2 cups of homemade chicken broth or water (or enough to be about 3cm over the veggies).

  • 1 cup coconut milk (pure, unsweetened)

  • Pepper (couple of rounds to taste)

  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste)

  • ¾ cup of cooked* amaranth (1 part amaranth, 1 part water)


    1. Heat oil in a pot

    2. Dice your onions and saute until translucent on low heat

    3. In the meantime, peel and dice your butternut and potato

    4. Add both to the pan, grind some pepper in and saute a bit stirring occasionally

    5. Add broth and bring to boil

    6. Lower the heat and cook covered until soft (about 20 minutes)

    7. Add coconut milk and cook another 5 minutes

    8. Add amaranth and salt and cook another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally (it’s sticking a bit).

    9. Serve warm


*it’s possible to add just washed, uncooked amaranth in the time of broth adding, but it seems to me the amaranth doesn’t cook as well and it sticks.
