There isn’t anything more comforting in the cooler months than a hearty soup. Especially one that uses fresh seasonal ingredients bursting with health benefits.
This rustic pumpkin soup is chock-full of cancer-fighting carotene as well as beta-carotene, which gets converted into vitamin A for healthy skin and eyes. Plus, the mega amounts of vitamin C from pumpkin and carrots can give your immune system a boost so you don’t end up catching your boyfriend’s cold. Pumpkin is also an excellent source of belly-filling fiber, keeping you from mindlessly snacking when you’re binge watching holiday specials.
You can whip up a big batch in just over an hour, and settle in for a long winter’s night. Sprinkle each dish with chestnuts and herb olive oil (hello, healthy fats!) for an extra punch of flavor.
