Pumpkin Curry Soup (Vegan + GF) - Rhian's Recipes (1)

I love making curry-flavoured pumpkin dishes (such as this Chickpea Pumpkin Curry or this Chickpea Pumpkin Biryani) and I love how creamy and comforting pumpkin soups are (like thisMiso Pumpkin Soupand this Creamy Pumpkin Gnocchi Soup), so I thought I'd try combining the two!

Why you'll love this Pumpkin Curry Soup

This soup is pleasantly spiced, luxuriously smooth and has a wonderful natural sweetness. It's a great way to pack loads of veggies into a meal without even realising it, and is the best way to get rid of a cold! I'd also really recommend it for meal prep as it's so easy to make in big batches to store individual portions in the fridge or freezer for another time.

I like to add some beans to my soups before blending as it's a good way to add extra protein and fibre, and also creates a seriously creamy texture.

How to serve this Pumpkin Curry Soup

Inspired by my coconut baconand almond bacon, I decided to make some curry-flavoured coconut flakes. Just fry some coconut flakes with maple syrup, curry powder, salt and pepper, and you'll have the most addictive sweet-salty, deliciously spicy snack! Whilst they're delicious devoured by the handful, they also make a great topping for this soup as they add a lovely nutty flavour and crunchy texture.

This soup also tastes great served with white rice, brown rice, quinoa, breador a sandwich!

    I have discovered your recipes today through Pinterest. I have tried the blueberry muffins which were successful and I have now printed off two soups to try. What I noticed is that your printed recipes don't have your contact/website/social media details on them. It might be an idea to add this information to each as people might forget from which website they printed off the receipt in the first place. Just an idea.
