Tone It Up Tuesday


Since Thanksgiving is this week I thought I would share a healthy, Sweet & Savory Pumpkin Soup recipe from the Tone It Up gals!

SWEET AND SAVORY PUMPKIN SOUP

3-4 SERVINGS
INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 CUPS OF PUMPKIN PURÉE
  • ¼ CUP UNSWEETENED COCONUT MILK
  • ½ CUP VEGETABLE STOCK
  • OPTIONAL: 2 SWEET POTATOES, PEELED AND
  • DICED
  • 1 CUP CARROTS, CHOPPED
  • 2 TBS HONEY OR 2 TBS OF BROWN SUGAR
  • 1 TBS COCONUT OIL
  • 1 TSP TURMERIC
  • 1 TSP PUMPKIN PIE SPICE
  • 1 TSP CINNAMON
  • PINCH OF SEA SALT
  • PINCH ALL SPICE
  • PINCH OF NUTMEG
  • 1 WHOLE CLOVE OF GARLIC
  • Optional: Add tempeh, ground turkey or chicken
Add all ingredients to your slow cooker (including chicken or turkey, if using). Set it on low to medium heat for 6-8 hours. When you come home, you’ll have a warm, comforting pumpkin soup waiting for you! If using tempeh, warm up and add immediately before serving. Serve with 5 pecans on top!
Enjoy and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
