Everything new that I create in this world of wellness will help you do one of those four things on more days than you don’t. That’s my promise.
Healthy Pumpkin Soup Ingredients:
This soup makes 4 servings.
- 4 cups pumpkin, peeled, seeded, and chopped
- 1 cup red pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1 cup zucchini, chopped
- 1 cup yellow onions, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup celery with stem, chopped
- 6 to 7 tablespoons Gaea Sitia Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1⁄2 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
- 1 cup crumbled goat cheese (or hard cheese)
- 2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
Healthy Recipe Directions:
Place the chopped pumpkin, zucchini, onions and celery in a large soup pot and add the vegetable stock until at least half the vegetables are covered. Bring the broth to a boil then let simmer over low heat for 30 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the soup cool to room temperature before pureeing vegetable and broth in a blender. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of olive oil to the pureed mixture and return the soup to the pot and let simmer for 15 minutes before serving in individual soup bowls. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the pumpkin seeds, crumbled cheese, and ginger.
The P.D.O. region of SITIA in Eastern Crete is one of the most celebrated olive oil producing territories in the world. Since the Minoan era, almost 5000 years ago, the extended sunshine, the mountainous grounds and rich soils of Crete have provided a unique microclimate for the cultivation of olive trees. Obtained directly from handpicked renowned “Koroneiki” variety olives, this cold extracted superior category olive oil carries the unique combination of a harmonious taste with a fruity & slightly peppery aroma (MSRP $12.99) www.gaeaus.com.
