Soups: Alkaline Pumpkin Coconut Soup
Pumpkins are not only alkaline, but also very low in calories which make them an ideal vegetable for anybody who watches its weight.
Moreover, pumpkins are rich in potassium, magnesium, zinc, fiber, iron as well as beta-carotene (antioxidant), which are really good at neutralizing free radicals.
6 cups water (best: alkaline water produced with an water ionizer)
1 cup low fat coconut milk
5 ounces potatoes
2 big onions
3 ounces leek
1 handful of fresh parsley
1 pinch of nutmeg
1 pinch of cayenne pepper
1 tsp. sea salt or organic salt
4 tbsp. cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
First of all: cut the onions, the pumpkin, the potatoes as well as the leek into small pieces.
Then, heat the olive oil in a big pot and sauté the onions for a few minutes.
Then add the water and boil the pumpkin, potatoes and the leek until tender.
Add the coconut milk.
Now use a hand blender and puree for around 1 minute. The soup should become very creamy.
Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg and finally add the parsley.
Enjoy this alkalizing pumpkin soup hot or cold!
