Pumpkin and garlic soup

Pumpkins often fill our shops in Halloween but this simple soup recipe is great all year round. Pumpkins are low calorie, filled with vitamins and antioxidants, that can boost your immune system and promote good heart and skin health.

You can substitute half of the pumpkin with any squash variety depending on availability and your taste, but this healthy soup recipe is such an easy warming treat that you’re sure to enjoy.

For toppings I recommend grated cheese, thinly sliced chorizo, and croutons.

To make simple croutons get:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 slice wholemeal seeded bread

Cut the bread into tiny squares and fry in oil until crisp.

Or for an extra crunchy topping, why not try Roasted Pumpkin Seeds.

  2. So delicious and easy as well! I added one white onion and shallots from my allotment as I didn’t have red onion and still worked very well
