Roasted Pumpkin, Garlic and Chilli Soup

A DELICIOUS AUTUMN RECIPE

It’s full pumpkin season and I want to make the most of it.  Today, I am sharing this nutritious and simple pumpkin soup anyone can make! The secret is in the roasted garlic. There is just nothing better than the warming and earthy taste of roasted garlic. Therefore you have to trust me and try this version!

As the sun softens its glow and the leaves begin to colour in warm, autumnal tones, my favourite season starts. And with it, it brings flavours and comfort food that can only be appreciated on a chilly October evening.

Satisfaction and happy, warm feelings guaranteed!

Oh, but don’t leave without some pumpkin health benefits:

  • Feel Fuller. Pumpkin seeds pack about 1.7 grams of dietary fiber per ounce, while mashed pumpkin has only 50 calories per cup and 3 grams of fiber
  • Boost Vision
  • Lower Blood Pressure
  • Sleep Better
  • Have a Healthier Heart
