Pumpkin Tomato Soup | Autumn Soup Bowl | Veggies Soup

A bowl of warming soup is the best comfort food on a cold day. Pumpkin, and tomato combine to make a healthy and colorful soup, which I especially enjoy during the fall. What I love about this soup is that it’s a breeze to throw together and has a velvety texture without the need for heavy cream.

Pumpkin Tomato Soup

Pumpkin is loaded with vitamin A, which is thought to be great for eye health, the antioxidant beta carotene, which may help to prevent cancer, and potassium, to help with muscle recovery after a workout. Paired with tomatoes, which are a great source of vitamin C, iron, and lycopene, which might reduce your risk for heart disease, this soup is a healthy addition to any meal.

As an added bonus, you can always use any leftovers as a dip or pasta sauce. This is exactly the type of recipe I’m going for this fall. I just love feeling cozy and warm, and this creamy pumpkin tomato soup fits that vibe. What I also love about the recipe is that it’s perfect for that late summer to early fall transition, and utilizes a summer staple like tomatoes in a way that’s still cozy for chilly fall nights.

Pumpkin Carrot Noodle Soup | Steamed Method | कद्दू गाजर नूडल सूप

Well, it is fall/autumn and time for pumpkins to reach their peak in flavor, nutrition, and I love pumpkin – a vibrant carrot pumpkin soup topped with noodles. Bursting with flavor, this comforting, vegetarian soup comes alive with hearty pumpkin, sweet carrots. The pumpkin and carrot combo creates such an incredible flavor.

Pumpkin Carrot Noodle Soup

For the spices in this soup, I used a combination of Himalayan pink salt, black pepper with little butter. These little spices brighten up the sweet and delicate flavors of the carrot and pumpkin and add a lot of health benefits. This pumpkin and carrot soup is made using a handful of ingredients and is ready in no time.

Yummy Noodles Soup

Although this soup is naturally thick and creamy thanks to the pumpkin and carrots, you can also add a dash of plant-based cream or milk to make the soup extra creamy. Also, make sure to add your favorite toppings like flaked chili pepper, fresh parsley, or pumpkin seeds.

Steamed Method

I used the steaming method for making this soup. Steaming softens vegetables while maintaining most of their nutrients, especially water-soluble compounds that are damaged by heat. Whether you use an electric steamer, a bamboo steamer, or a microwaveable plastic bag or dish, steam vegetables will retain more texture, flavor, and nutritional value when you prepare them with this indirect form of heat and moisture.

Delicious Veggies Soup

Once soft and tender, puree either in a blender jar or use an immersion blender. Adjust consistency, season with salt and more black pepper, and simmer until all the flavors have amalgamated. Super a simple and tasty recipe.
