Pumpkin Soup

Today I felt like having soup. So I whipped up this quick little recipe on the spot with ingredients that I had on hand.

If you’re anything like me, you love a quick and easy recipe that is easy on the calories and big on the vitamins.

This dish is it!

One bowl packs a whopping 950% of your daily vitamin A, and 10 healthy grams of fiber!!

And it only took me under 8 minutes from start to finish.

I’m not kidding you. This simple soup was so good, I practically licked the bowl.

I’ll definitely be making more this week.

If you make this soup (and why wouldn’t you?), please post a comment below to let me know how you liked it, and if you added any different spices.

Here’s my exact recipe, which I ate for lunch, along with two whole wheat tortillas that I heated on a dry skillet.
