Delicious Pumpkin Soup

It’s that time of year again – get your carving tools at the ready! We say this every year, that Halloween has come round so quickly! This delicious soup makes the very best of the new season of pumpkins and squashes. With pumpkins widely available, so many of us put this delicious fruit/vegetable to waste by throwing it away.

If you are not one to celebrate the Halloween spirit, you can still use canned pumpkin in this recipe, which I find is actually a lot easier. This soup is soup makes a delicious lunch or a light dinner, perfect for those cold autumn evenings. It would be great served alongside our homemade hummus and whole wheat bread.  Pumpkin is rich in providing you many vitamins and minerals your body craves throughout these winter months. Turn up the heat by adding either chilli flakes or more thai green curry paste. Season to individaul taste, this soup is delicious both cold and hot.
