1 tsp onion powder 

1 tsp cumin 

1 tsp allspice

1 tsp ground ginger

2 cups coconut milk (A Taste Of Thai brand, save the cream!) 

2 cups organic veggie stock  

2 tablespoons hot pepper and garlic chutney 

Salt and Pepper to taste 


 4 pieces Bacon, cooked and crumbled 

Pomegranate seeds 

Coconut Cream  (saved from the Coconut Milk)  

Homemade Chimichurri (from my blog)
