Fall Delight: Pumpkin Curry Soup
There’s something especially comforting about a warm bowl of soup during cold weather months. But take note, this antioxidant-rich Pumpkin Curry Soup is not your typical ho-hum soup. It’s thick and creamy (thanks to cauliflower, not cream!) with warm spices, and lots of antioxidants from the veggies. Cauliflower and pumpkin give this soup a decadent, satisfying texture while providing an array of health benefits, from reducing the risk of chronic disease, to boosting immunity! And please don’t worry! Your cauli-hating kids (or husband won’t taste it, we swear!).
Serve this dreamy pumpkin curry soup as an appetizer, with salad, or reduce the servings for a heftier portion as your main meal. We like to top ours with seasoned cashews for extra health benefits. And satisfaction, of course!
Bonus mini recipe for curried cashews:
To make our sweet and spicy candied cashews, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a pan over medium heat. Add in 1/2 cup of cashew pieces with 1 tablespoon Lakanto Golden Monkfruit, 1/2 teaspoon of curry, pinch of sea salt and a pinch of cayenne. Stir until the sweetener liquefies and everything is coated well. Remove to a sheet of wax paper to cool. Sprinkle over soup.
