Pumpkin Soup

This is another hearty and healthy soup - no fixed recipe , go with the concept and I am sure you will plate a winner. Although I like fresh stock , it's not always possible to use so go with cubes.
1 Kg Pumpkin - Peeled and cut in chunks.
2 Carrots - Peeled and cut in chunks.
2 Onions - Peeled and cut in chunks.
Lots of Garlic ( 20 or more cloves )
1 Coconut - white portion only , cut in chunks.
Green Chilies to taste.
1.5 Teaspoons Jeera.
Drizzle olive oil on everything , cover with foil and bake at 200C for about 15-20 minutes till pumpkin is soft.
If you don't have an oven , cook covered in a wok  with a dash of water till done.
Cool , blend in a mixi , add stock / water + cubes , cook a few minutes for flavors to develop and blend , adjust seasoning and warm up with this beautiful coconut ( NOT coconut milk ! ) based soup.
I now cook my vegetables rather than boil them as the flavors are so much richer .
