Sous Vide Coconut Pumpkin Soup

Anova Culinary

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.
