- Place pumpkin and cauliflower florets into a large pot, add oil, cumin powder, chilli powder if using and toss evenly. Pour onto a baking tray and add garlic and onion.
- Roast for 30 mins or until tender.
- Cool for a few minutes and then transfer back to large pot, gently squeezing the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins.
- Add the stock and coconut milk and using a stick blender (or use a food processor), process until smooth. Add more water if necessary to achieve desired consistency. Gently heat until just comes to a boil. Just before serving, stir through the fresh coriander.
- Serve immediately with some extra fresh coriander on top and a sprinkling of coconut flakes and extra chilli flakes if desired,, with grainy toast on the side. I recommend My New Roots Life Changing Bread.
