It’s September! And that means pumpkin season is about to begin! I love Autumn. Cozying up underneath a blanket while it’s starting to get a bit colder outside with a nice bowl of hot pumpkin soup gives me all the ‘Fall feels’.

This soup is paleo friendly, dairy free and absolutely delicious! (in my humble opinion). In this recipe I use a butternut squash, but you can use any of your favourite pumpkins.

PALEO PUMPKIN SOUP

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 onion (cut into pieces)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 medium sized carrots (peeled and cut into pieces)
  • 1 medium sized butternut squash (peeled and cut into pieces)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2-3 cups water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a large pot, melt the coconut oil on medium-high heat.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and let cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the carrots, butternut squash, salt and pepper. Stir with a wooden spoon.
  4. Add the chicken broth and water.
  5. Let everything cook on medium-low heat for about 30 minutes, or until the carrots are soft.
  6. When the vegetables are soft, mix everything into a smooth soup. You can add more water if you want a less thick soup.

TO TOP OFF THE SOUP

You can add some topping to this soup, to give it that little extra, such as:
– bacon pieces
– coconut cream
– pumpkinseeds
– fresh or dried parsley
