Vegan Coconut-Pumpkin Soup

This is one soup recipe I cannot forget as I felt this is one of the most flavorful soups I have ever tasted. My husband who is a great connoisseur of soups, apparently tasted this at work. So he recollected the ingredients and finally we figured out that it was pumpkin coconut soup. The whole 'brain storming' session was an interesting. In the end, I was happy to satisfy his palate and in the process got to taste an amazing soup.

Check it out for Day 2 Week 1 of BM #49 where Pumpkin is the star ingredient of my choice.
