My girlfriend Kara posted the most divine & SIMPLE “recipe” the other day for pumpkin soup & I was inspired to share it with you because it aligns so powerfully with my philosophy on health, & life in general-

Use what you have; tap into your inner knowing; create magic! 

So here is her very uncomplicated & very delicious pumpkin soup “recipe” which she was inspired to create after being gifted with a pumpkin from a neighbour:

-Roast pumpkin of choice- skin on- for extra goodness!

-Roast with onions (I had one red and one brown in my fridge), ideally garlic cloves too!

-Use a generous splash of olive oil and season with salt & pepper, plus a little paprika or cayenne pepper.

-Roast on 210 degrees Celsius until caramelised

-Transfer into a pot and add desired stock to suit the thickness of soup loved by your family- blitz it

-Once blitzed, heat on stove top, add a splash of cream (if you choose)

-serve & ENJOY (with crusty bread& butter for complete satisfaction!🙌🏻❤️

And in case you’re wondering, pumpkins are sooooo good for us as they are loaded with antioxidant powerhouses- carotenoids – which gives the rich orange colouring

As well as vitamin B’s & C (E too if you eat the seeds!)

They are also high in pectins- a type of fibre that helps with satiety, blood sugar regulation & can contribute to cholesterol reduction!

So you see- comfort food (aka soul food) CAN be 100% good for your physical health too!

Let me know if you’re inspired to get a pumpkin on the chopping block and in the oven! 🙌🏻❤️
