Pumpkin, Turmeric & Ginger Soup

June 2 2016
« SCROLL PHOTOS LEFT TO RIGHT »

This week’s new recipe is a deliciously smooth Pumpkin Turmeric & Ginger Soup. It’s one of my favourite soup recipes at the moment (especially now that we’ve just hit winter here in Australia), and has a few ‘secret’ ingredients that make it stand out.

I feel as though everyone has their own little secret ingredient for the perfect homemade pumpkin soup. For me, I love to add a tablespoon of natural peanut butter, to bring out the nuttiness of the pumpkin. I also like to sautee the vegetables and spices in a couple of tablespoons of ghee, before adding the stock and water. It gives a lovely flavour to the soup and compliments the earthy fresh ginger and turmeric. YUM!

Do you have a ‘secret’ homemade soup ingredient?

Enjoy!
