Food: Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkin Soup Sweet and Savory :)

Pumpkin is chock full ‘o goodness. You can tell by its bright color that it’s going to be going to be good for you. Not only is pumpkin loaded with vitamin A and antioxidant carotenoids, particularly alpha and beta-carotenes, it’s a good source of vitamins C, K, and E, and lots of minerals, including magnesium, potassium, and iron.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

- Pumpkin 1/4
- 1 Sweet Potato
- 1 Carrot
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Half a red onion
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Water

Garnishing: (optional)

- Coconut Milk
- Parsley


- Cut all the ingredients into cubes.
- Place all the ingredients on to a pot
- Pour in Water along with salt and pepper.
- Boil it. Medium heat... boil until ingredients are breaking apart or soft (for puree).
- Puree everything on a blender or something that will puree lol
- Pour it on a bowl (for 2 people), then garnish with coconut milk and parsley (optional)
- Add spices if you want a kick. :)

I actually had the best pumpkin soup ever at Baguio City, Philippines.
It was an all-vegetable restaurant called Azotea Greens.
They serve the best veggie meals in town (for us hehe).
