  1. In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onion and cook until softened.
  2. Add minced garlic and grated ginger to the pot, stirring until fragrant.
  3. Add diced pumpkin to the pot, followed by powdered turmeric and cumin. Stir to coat the pumpkin with the spices.
  4. Pour in the lite coconut milk and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer. Allow the pumpkin to cook until tender.
