  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 15 ounce cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed*
  • 2 15 ounce cans pumpkin or 3 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1 15 ounce can coconut milk regular or light
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 Tablespoon curry powder
  • ½ Tablespoon garam masala
  • ½ Tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • toppings: extra salt and pepper roasted pumpkin seeds, coconut milk yogurt and fresh thyme


Slow Cooker:

  • Heat oil in a skillet (or the base of your slow cooker if your slow cooker allows for sautéing) over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until translucent and fragrant.
  • Place cooked onion and garlic along with all the other ingredients into your slow cooker. Stir to combine. Cook soup on low for 4-6 hours.
  • Use an immersion blender to blend until the soup is smooth.
  • Serve warm with toppings of choice.


  • Heat oil in a large soup pot and cook the onions and garlic until soft and fragrant.
  • Add all remaining ingredients into the pot. Bring the soup to a boil and then simmer for 20-30 minutes.
  • Turn off heat and use an immersion blender to blend the soup.
  • Serve warm with toppings of choice.


  • Cannellini beans are also called white kidney beans. If you can't find them navy beans also work.
  • If you don't have an immersion blender you can blend the soup in a regular blender doing small batches at a time. Just be super careful as the soup will be hot and can splash out of the blender.
