There’s nothing like a spicy soup to keep the comfort levels high throughout winter, and this simple, wholesome soup is one to add to your collection. Cooked in turmeric, cumin, coriander and fennel, the exotic flavours will warm you up from head to toe. Its spicy kick is hushed with almond milk and sweet pumpkin. 

But besides being delicious, this hearty soup is also very nutritious. Pumpkin is packed with vitamins and minerals (particularly immune-boosting vitamin A and vitamin C), while also being relatively low in calories due to its high water content. Just one cup of smashed pumpkin contains only 50 calories and an impressive 245% of your daily recommended intake of vitamin A.

Pumpkin is also a good source of antioxidants, such as alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin. These compounds can neutralize free radicals, preventing oxidative damage and protecting against certain cancers.  We also love the addition of turmeric, which contains, among others, a powerful medicinal compound called curcumin. Curcumin is well-studied for its potent anti-inflammatory, anti-tumour and antioxidant effects. 

Tip: Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds for additional protein. These oval-shaped green seeds are remarkably high in amino acids, especially tryptophan, which can support a restful night’s sleep. 


  • 1 1/2 cups Almo Milk
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 cups pumpkin, peeled and cubed
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and chopped

To serve

  • 1/4 cup Almo Crème

  2. Stir in all spices and sauté for another 2-3 minutes, until lightly toasted. Add vegetable broth and Almo Milk. Simmer for 15 minutes or until pumpkin is cooked through.

  4.  Taste and season accordingly with freshly ground black pepper and sea salt. Serve with a sprinkle of coriander and a dollop of Almo Crème.
