Remove from the oven and allow to cool; then peel the pumpkin.
In a pan or non-stick pan sauté the onions using some of the olive oil for 2-3 minutes, add the potato, peeled and cut in cubes, the garlic, finely chopped, and the baked carrots and sauté for another minute.
Add the pumpkin, coriander, carry, salt and pepper and then add the water or the vegetable bouillon cube in warm water to avoid reducing the temperature. When it comes to a boil, lower the heat and cook for another 10-15 minutes.
Puree the ingredients using an immersion blender or multi food processor. Add some more of the herbs or some salt and pepper without removing from the low heat. Add the rest of the olive oil or coconut oil and serve.
