Pumpkin, Macadamia and Coriander Soup

It was a miserable day here with squally showers and blustery winds a blow. Indeed it was a perfect day for soup. I purchased a bag of macadamia nuts from a guy at the farmers markets on the weekend for $3.00 and whilst many were consumed during the nut cracking process yesterday we did have enough left over for soup. Perfect for such a dreary day.

Pumpkin, Macadamia and Coriander Soup
Serves 4 - 6

1 tblspn ghee
1 medium onion
1 clove of garlic, crushed
½ - 1 tblspn red curry paste (depending on your like for spice)
½ small pumpkin chopped roughly
1 zuchinni chopped roughly
1 organic vegetable stock cube
1 – 1 ½ cups water (approx)
¼ tspn ground black pepper
¼ cup coconut cream
1 cup macadamia nuts roughly chopped plus extra for garnish
Good handful of coriander leaves
Juice of 1 lime

Heat the ghee gently in a large saucepan
Add the onion and garlic, stirring regularly
Add chopped pumpkin and zuichinni and allow to cook for about five minutes, stirring regularly
