Curried Coconut Pumpkin Soup {Whole 30}

So, a hearty easy-to-make soup was in order today. Last month I took full advantage of cut price pumpkins and bought 3, chopped, cooked and pureed them and bagged them up for the freezer. Along with the chicken stock I have, I managed to cook up this tasty lunch:

Defrosted 2 1/2 cups of chicken stock and 4 cups pumpkin puree.

Chop one large or 2 medium onions.

Sautee the onion until soft, add a tablespoon of mild/medium curry powder and cook for a minute or two.

Add a cup of coconut milk, the stock and pumpkin and heat through.

Let the mixture cool a little and then puree in a blender.

While your soup is cooling, grill some bacon until crispy.

Serve with cracked black pepper and slice the bacon up…delish 😉

 

To recap:

Curried Coconut Pumpkin Soup – serves 6

You will need:

2 tbsp coconut oil

1 large onion, chopped

1 tbsp medium/mild curry powder (adjust to your taste-this made a soup with some warm heat but not overpowering)

2 1/2 cups chicken stock

4 cups pumpkin puree

1 cup coconut milk

Bacon – I allowed one rasher per person

Method:

  1. Heat the oil in a large soup pan over a medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sautee until soft – 3-5 minutes.
  2. Add the curry powder and coat the onion well, cooking for a further minute.
  3. Add stock and purée and bring to simmer. Stir in the coconut milk.
  4. Allow mixture to cool sufficiently to whiz through the blender. In the meantime, grill the bacon until crispy.
  5. Warm soup and serve with sliced bacon bits on top.

Easy! Enjoy 😉
