Yeast-Free Spiced Pumpkin Soup Recipe 

Ingredients: 

1 tablespoon organic coconut oil

1 medium yellow onion

2-3 fresh garlic cloves

1 large or 2 small cans organic canned pumpkin puree

6 cups organic broth

1 tsp sea salt

½ tsp pepper

1 tsp pumpkin pie seasoning

1-2 tablespoons Sweet-N-Natural

1 tablespoon cornstarch or oat flour

¼ cup water

¼ cup unsweetened coconut milk (optional for a creamier soup)

Directions: 

1. Turn heat to medium low on a large pot. 

2. Dice onions.  Add organic coconut oil and onions to pot. Turn up heat to medium and stir. 

3. Mince and stir in garlic cloves. Sauté onions and garlic until translucent and golden. 

4. Add canned pumpkin, broth, salt, pepper, Sweet-N-Natural, and pumpkin pie seasoning. Mix well.

5. Increase heat to medium high and bring to a boil for 2-3 minutes. Reduce to medium low and simmer 30-45 minutes. The longer it simmers, the better the flavor, up to 1 hour. After cooling a bit, you can add the coconut milk for a creamier soup. For a little bit of crunch, sprinkle 1 tsp crushed walnuts on top of the soup in each bowl before serving.

 Enjoy!
