Pumpkin Curry Soup Recipe That Cooks Itself!
Pumpkin Curry Soup is the perfect Fall soup that’s warm and comforting.
It’s also a complete one pot healthy meal with a protein and veggies… PLUS it cooks itself!
This soup is:
- Creamy and filling
- Full of fall flavors
- High in fiber which helps you feel fuller longer and promotes digestive health
- Builds muscle and burns fat with the protein and veggies
Did I forget something? Oh, and of course an Immunity Booster! Boom!!!
My kids actually love it and it’s not an overpowering or spicy soup. It’s really creamy yet hearty with the ground turkey in it.
I loved that I felt like I was having a rich and decadent soup without the extra heavy cream and butter that’s usually in these types of soups. So this is filling and fat-burning. Just wait til I share the coconut milk health and weight loss facts with you! Woohoo!
What is Curry Paste?
I never cooked with curry paste before trying this recipe and ended up loving that it was the secret ingredient that added a boost of natural color and flavor with nature’s immune boosting support through the ginger and spices it contains.
Emergency Slow Cooker Dinner
This soup is worthy to be added to you list of emergency slow cooker dinners, fall parties or even for Halloween or Thanksgiving soup. It’s a perfect bowl of healthy comfort! In fact, it’s a great way to avoid mindlessly eating as I mentioned when I was featured as an expert in this article on “Psychology Today”.
Here are some of the benefits you get from the ingredients of these recipe. Pin it or save it as your health benefit checklist.
Organic, Pasture Raised Ingredients
Remember, the better the ingredients, the better the healthy benefits and the taste!
When I list ingredients in Healthy Family Meal Plans I am using organic, pasture-raised, grass-fed, hormone-free and antibiotic-free real food ingredients.
Not only is this “REAL Food” but it will be
- more nutritious as organic food as more vitamins and nutrients in it,
- more filling so you naturally eat less,
- fat burning because your body recognizes it as food (it’s not toxic) and gets burned off faster,
- and it’s WAYYYYY more delicious!
We made this Pumpkin Curry Soup for Halloween so that we didn’t have to cook or order an unhealthy pizza, we got out the door faster to trick-or-treat sooner and we stayed fuller longer so we all ate less candy on Halloween Night.
Think about how this recipe can help you and your family eat and stay healthy on different days of the year this fall season!
Pumpkin Curry Soup
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 150 minutes Serves: 4
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 2 tablespoons red curry paste
- 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
- 2 (14 ounce) cans pure pumpkin puree
- 3 1/2 cups pureed steamed sweet potatoes
- 1 (14ounce) can unsweetened coconut milk
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper ,to taste
- 1/2 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
- In a medium skillet, over medium high heat, add ground turkey.Cook turkey until brown.
2. In a large crock cooker, add the browned turkey and the next 6 ingredients; mix well.
3. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 hours or cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 hours, until soup flavors develop and condense.
4. Sprinkle pumpkin seeds on top of soup and serve warm.
Note, taking just a few minutes to brown the turkey is a gourmet cooking technique that brings out the richer flavors of the meat and your dish. So, I wouldn’t recommend skipping this step.
Because when you are trying to eat healthy, you want it to taste gourmet and amazing so that you don’t go back to processed food and crave the healthy dishes instead!
Soup and Crackers
What’s soup without the crackers? You don’t have to give up crackers of you’re trying to go gluten free, or even processed foods free. There are some responsible organic companies that are packing real food in a convenient way, like Lundberg. These Red Rice and Quinoa Thin Stackers have just those organic ingredients plus organic brown rice. That’s it! Ludberg has plain organic rice Thin Stackers too.
I know these crackers aren’t totally Paleo, but when you are transitioning your family from a Standard American Diet and are trying to ditch the processed food, you gotta find food that can fill the void.
