In a large pot, add in the olive oil and onion. 

Sauté over medium heat to caramelize the onions. Stir every few minutes so that they don't stick. You want them to be a medium brown color. Yum!

Next, add in the coconut oil, garlic, ginger, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook for about 5 minutes until everything is nice and soft.

Step 3

Add the vegetable broth, pumpkin, and carrots. Let this gently simmer for about 40 minutes until the pumpkin & carrots are tender.

Step 4

Puree with a stick blender until nice and smooth. Add a bit of water or more stock if you find that you need more liquid. If you don't have a good stick blender and like to make creamy soups, you can get one here on Amazon.
