How to make it

The soup

  • 1

    Saute the onion and garlic with a little oil in a large non-stick saucepan over a medium heat. Allow 5 minutes.

  • 2

    Add the cinnamon stick, turmeric and curry along with a pinch of salt and pepper. Lower the heat and leave to simmer for a few more minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent the spices from burning.

  • 3

    Add the tomato puree and let it simmer for a few minutes until everything has a deep red colour. Stir occasionally.

  • 4

    Add the diced pumpkin and season again with salt and pepper. Leave everything to simmer for another 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • 5

    Rinse the lentils in a sieve under cold running water and add them. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Leave to simmer for 20 minutes with the lid on the pot.

  • 6

    Mix the coconut cream into the soup. Blend the soup in the blender or with a hand blender. Taste and season with salt and pepper if necessary.
