EASY PUMPKIN & CARROT SOUP RECIPE

Ingredients For Pumpkin & Carrot Soup

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large chopped purple onion
  • 2 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 6-8 cloves of minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 8 cups of vegetable or chicken broth

  • 4 cups of carrots 1/2 inch dice (peeled or unpeeled your choice)
  • sour cream & parsley for garnish

*Amazon has lots of mixed seeds that you can purchase online. Here is one of our favorite mixed seed packs for salads and soups.

Instructions For Pumpkin Carrot Soup Recipe

1. In a large pot, add in the olive oil and onion. Saute over medium heat to caramelize the onions. Stir every few minutes so that they don't stick. You want them to be a medium brown color. Yum!

2. Next, add in the coconut oil, garlic, ginger, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook for about 5 minutes until everything is nice and soft.

3. Add the vegetable broth, pumpkin, and carrots. Let this gently simmer for about 40 minutes until the pumpkin & carrots are tender.

4. Puree with a stick blender until nice and smooth. Add a bit of water or more stock if you find that you need more liquid. If you don't have a good stick blender and like to make creamy soups, you can get one here on Amazon.

5. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and mixed seeds on top for an extra crunch and energy boost.
