This is the dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan curry soup you’ve been dreaming of. A blend of coconut milk, tender white beans and silky pumpkin makes a creamy substitute for the butter or yogurt that is usually added to creamy soups. The topping of fresh cilantro adds a mildly sweet touch and pulls everything together. This soup is perfect to serve alongside a sandwich or enjoy alone for a light meal.
