Spicy Pumpkin Vegetable Soup

10 Sep

In honor of Fall, the Libby’s Pumpkin has come out of hibernation.  It is a wonderful day!

 

 

I figured I would incorporate two of my favorite things about Fall – soup & pumpkin.  & I gotta say, it turned out pretty excellent!  Hope you enjoy!

 

 

 

Spicy Pumpkin Vegetable Soup (Vegan)

Makes about 8 servings

 

Ingredients:

2 TB olive oil

1 medium onion, finely diced

5 stalks of celery, diced

2 medium carrots, grated

3 cloves of garlic, finely diced

2 cans white kidney beans

1 can pureed pumpkin

3 cups vegetable broth

1 can fire-roasted diced tomatoes

1/2 can corn

1 heaping cup of mushrooms, chopped

1 cup spinach, chopped

1 cup kale, chopped

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 tsp Sriracha (I used 1 TB but I like it extra spicy)

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp garlic salt

1/4 cup quinoa

Parmesan cheese (optional)

Greek yogurt (optional)

 

1.  In small bowl, lightly mash beans and set aside.

2.  In a soup pot, saute oil, onions, carrots, celery and garlic until onions are lightly browned.

3.  Add broth, pumpkin, tomatoes, corn, mushrooms and kale.

4.  Stir and bring to a boil.

5.  Add spinach and beans.

6.  Reduce heat and stir in milk, Sriracha, seasonings and quinoa.

7.  Simmer until spinach wilts and quinoa thickens.

8.  Serve and top with parmesan cheese or greek yogurt.

9. Enjoy!
