PALEO PUMPKIN SPICE APPLE SOUP

AKA “I’m Only Joking” – Kongos

paleo pumpkin soup

It’s almost halloween, time to rip the mask off those “healthy” labels and eat the REAL deal. NO JOKING around here! Real food, real health.…

When the temperature drops, I start making warm comfort food and I will begin with a nice, cozy fall recipe that includes…. yes… you guessed it… pumpkin! I CRAVE carbs in the winter so this time I will be prepared with some GOOD carbs like squashes, and other starchy veggies instead of those empty-calorie-faking-health grains. Resist that seductive looking bowl of pasta with me and grab a ladle full of pumpkin soup!

This recipe is paleo, gluten-free with option to be vegetarian or vegan.

RECIPE
4 servings

2 TBSP butter, ghee, or cooking oil of choice
1 cup onion (1/2 onion)
1 1/2 cup carrots
1 cup apple (1 apple – I used granny smith)
2 cups pumpkin (1 can/15-16 oz)
3 1/2 cups chicken or veggie broth (Make sure broth goes with your diet. If you need vegetarian or gluten-free, pay attention to labels!)

1 tsp garlic
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp ginger
2 TBSP sage (finely diced)
2 tsp salt
