I hate to be cold. Don’t really get it when people get excited when they see snow on the hills “So pretty!” They say. I agree, although I say it’s prettier when I’m looking at a picture of it, not in real life ♀️ In saying that!! For me the best part about winter is SOUP! And pumpkin soup is a favourite in our house! I always make sure there’s enough for seconds and leftovers! Is there really anything better than the feeling of knowing you have leftovers in the fridge?! I like to roast my pumpkin (buttercup or supermarket squash is my fav) with onion and garlic cloves (pop them onto the tray in their skins, they will cook inside until you can squeeze the soft sweet insides out) I then drizzle with olive oil and generously sprinkle with salt, pepper, turmeric and cumin. Once it is all roasted and the edges have caramelised...the hardest part for me at this point is to refrain from eating it right from the tray! I pop it all in a pot with stock, lots of grated fresh ginger, a can of coconut cream and tonight I added some miso paste also.
Bonus: Such a good way to get garlic, turmeric and ginger into those little tummies to help fight off those winter bugs.
Noa tip Add some vege dippers! Things like broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini and carrot battens to dip into the soup as you would bread. Noa loves to dip!
Tonight we also had a delicious seed toast to dunk, that is a favourite in our house from @realfoodpledge •
