Savory Pumpkin Soup

Well everyone I am officially a proud resident of Austin, Texas now! I've gotten all settled into my new place (for the most part). I even set up my own wifi and got my stinking wifi capable printer to finally print via the wifi. It's like I'm an adult or something. One adult thing I'm now having to deal with is big/bigger city traffic. Like yikes. I'm a little intimidated... or really more than a little... So this little fear I've got is kinda keeping me from making any major grocery store haul. I brought a few canned goods and some little bits I had left in my fridge back home, so I figured  I'd just try and whip up something simple. The result: this savory pumpkin soup! I've been wanting to try pumpkin soup for a while now, but I was a little skeptical.I've only ever had sweet pumpkin things and savory pumpkin just sounded so weird to me. But despite my reservations I grabbed that random can of pumpkin off the back shelf, and boy I'm glad I did! This is so so creamy and savory without being too over strongly flavored. It works well as a starter or even as a meal with some fresh bread and a salad. It's perfect for those days when your sinuses flare up or your throat gets a little sore. And to all you haters/doubters that believe it's just too early for pumpkin, settled down and enjoy the food! After all, if August is early enough for stores to start putting up Halloween stuff then it's the perfect time for me to begin my Fall pumpkin fast!

2 cups chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
2 cloves diced garlic
1 tsp refined coconut oil - Note: If you use unrefined coconut oil it will have a coconut taste
4 cups water
1 tbsp ground rosemary
2 bay leaves
1/4 tsp allspice
2 tsp tahini
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1 15 oz can of organic pumpkin
1. In a large pot sauté celery, onion, and garlic in the coconut oil over medium heat until the celery has softened.
2. Once the celery has softened add in the water, pumpkin, tahini and spices. Allow the soup to simmer for 20-25 minutes.
3. Use an immersion blender, or spoon the soup into a blender, and blend until smooth. Serve warm.

  2. I had pumpkin soup once at a wedding and it was delicious. I can't wait to make my own :)

  3. This is healthy but most of the people don't like pumpkins specially children. So we musk know about some other healthy options. You can add a glass of Acai Berry Juice to maintain good health for longer hours as maintaining good health is not that easy I believe.
