paleo pumpkin and turmeric bread

Make healthy nut bread in minutes!

Here is a delicious savoury paleo bread that has fantastic flavour and colour. It’s so simple to make. You don’t even have to pre-cook and mash the pumpkin – just chop it into cubes and blend it raw along with whole nuts. With the Vibe Blender System, pumpkin and turmeric bread batter is ready to pour into a loaf tin in a minute. It's that easy.

Any way you like - warm, cold or toasted, it’s the perfect healthy breakfast or snack.  Get yourself a double dose of turmeric and try it with our anti-inflammatory turmeric and coconut pumpkin soup
