Many people create pumpkin soup with double cream and whilst this ingredient can still be enjoyed as part of a Primal diet, we decided to experiment with coconut milk for extra health benefits. This recipe was inspired by one of our favourite foods, curry. Thanks to the deliciousness of the pumpkin and the cream of the coconut milk, all the flavours work amazingly well together and the hint of curry powder is far from overpowering. If you're a big fan of curry (don't worry it's not spicy), then this will not disappoint. You can either make this curry on the spot or make it in advance to allow the flavours to soak overnight. We much prefer option two but cooking it in the evening and serving up straight away is just as fine. Just make sure you allow it to simmer under a lid!



  • Coconut oil (2 tbsp)
  • Canned pumpkin puree (2x 400ml)
  • Canned full-fat coconut milk (2x400ml)
  • Vegetable stock (1 cup)
  • Onion (1, diced)
  • Garlic cloves (6, crushed)
  • Curry powder (2 tsp)
  • White pepper (1/2 tsp)
  • Oregano (1/2 tsp)
  • Thyme (1/2 tsp)
  • Bacon medallions (6, cooked and cut into chunks)
  • Pomegranate (Handful, to serve)
  • Pumpkin seeds (Small handful, to serve)
  • Salt & pepper (Pinch)
