Do you recognize this feeling? The feeling of soup when days start to get cold, shorter and it’s dark outside. Especially when pumpkin season is there, I tend to go straight to this favourite fall pumpkin soup. Pumpkin soup radiates autumn and winter for me and what I love about soup, is that it’s super easy to make, easy to vary, easy to keep for the day after,
easy for both lunch and dinner and it’s easy to fill your body with nutrition.
Pumpkin contains beta-carotene (also called pro-vitamin A), which is converted in the body into vitamin A. Vitamin A provides good resistance and is very important for vision, healthy bones, teeth, skin and growth. In other words: a vitamin that we really need during winter.
