Soul Satisfying Pumpkin Soup

 

Is there anything more soul satisfying than an awesome delicious cuppa’ soup? Outside of a tub soak in the bath, I reckon this is a close second! Whatever the weather, this creamy flavourful roasted pumpkin soup always manages to hit the spot and voila just like that I feel satiated, nourished, centered and grounded. I love to add some fresh grated nutmeg on top, fresh basil, or parsley (depending on how i’m feeling and what’s in my fridge) and a drizzle of high quality extra virgin organic olive oil on top – YUM! Served up with my homemade  nutty seeded gluten free vegan loaf slice, or a piece of my crusty homemade gluten free bread, or a few gluten free vegan rice chips (I love Lundberg brand) works so well too and I am in my happy cosy soul-soothing place! Enjoy darling.
