Nutcracker or boostbread recipe.
Start by chopping the onion, root vegetables and ginger into rough pieces. Heat a pan with real butter and fry the onion until soft, then add the root vegetables and ginger to the pan. Pour in the water and 2/3 of the coconut milk so that it just covers the root stuff, we can add more liquid after we mix it smooth if needed. Also add the stock cube and the spices. Let this simmer for about 15-20 minutes until the root vegetables are soft.
Meanwhile, boil the eggs and dry-roast the pumpkin seeds in a dry pan until they start to "pop". Then blend the soup until smooth and add more liquid if needed. Top this wonderful soup with drizzled coconut milk and the toasted pumpkin seeds. For extra protein and fat, top the soup with crumbled feta or goat cheese, eggs, or any other protein source you like. Another option is to eat the soup together with a boostbread sandwich, seed crackers or whatever you prefer.
