Oh how I love a bowl of warm pumpkin soup. This is such a simple recipe with a twist of green vege 😉
Using fresh, whole food ingredients this recipe is naturally gluten free and dairy free.
Did you know many store-bought stocks may contain gluten, lactose and yeast? I recommend finding a brand free from these ingredients and free from flavour enhancers or excess salt or alternatively you can make your own vegetable stock and freeze in batches for ready-to-go soup stock.

Nourish 101:

  • Soup is a great meal to nourish your body with nutrients. Fantastic for lunch, dinner or even breakfast, soups are an easy to digest meal.
  • Soup is also a great way to get kids to enjoy vegetables, especially some of those they wouldn’t typically eat whole.
  • Pumpkin is a powerhouse of anti-oxidant vitamins such as vitamin A and C necessary for maintaining healthy skin, eye sight and mucus membranes.
  • Kale, the popular super-vege, is loaded with minerals and vitamins. It contains health promoting nutrients such as iron, magnesium,manganese, vitamins K, A and C as ell as fibre.
