Shopping List
  • 1/2 small kabocha pumpkin (about 1 pound)
  • 1/2 pound carrots, diced
  • 1/2 pound fresh lump crabmeat (for topping, optional)
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 inch knob fresh ginger (optional)
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
  • pepper, to taste

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Remove the inner seeds and peel from the kabocha. Dice the orange flesh into 1 inch pieces. Set aside.
  2. Step 2: Heat the oil in large pot over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, onion, and ginger. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring often, until the onion begins to soften.
  3. Step 3: Add the diced carrots and pumpkin to the pot. Cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Then add the water, salt, and pepper. Bring the soup to a boil and then cover with a lid. Lower the heat to medium and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the pumpkin is very tender.
  4. Step 4: Puree the cooled soup with an immersion blender, standing blender, or food processor until very smooth. It will make a thick soup, so add an extra 1/2 cup of water for a thinner soup.
  5. Serve: Enjoy the soup warm or chilled, each topped with fresh mint and a small dollop of crabmeat.
