  2. Add 1 tbsp olive oil to a large pot on high heat. Add onion and garlic then cook for 5 mins or until soft.
  3. Reduce to low heat then add pumpkin, vegetable stock, coconut milk, liquid smoke, ‘honey’ and mustard. Cook for 90 mins, stirring occasionally. Mix the soup with a blender until it has a smooth consistency.
