Creamy Pumpkin Coconut Curry

"As many of you know I am slightly obsessed with curries and could eat them pretty much everyday, especially in the colder seasons. Something about the warming spices like turmeric, ginger, coriander, and cayenne that makes my body feel amazing. I also tend to operate better with slow cooked, warm meals, as they are easier to digest. ⁣ This curry is super easy to make and is a big enough batch that it will last you all week long."
