This past weekend to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving Ma McCarthy made an absolutely wonderful feast with an organic turkey and all the fixings (plus her Gluten-free Quinoa Chocolate Cake ) on Saturday night. Then on Sunday we celebrated with my hubs family with a wonderfully local and delicious meal. If you're like me, you are likely looking forward to eating a little lighter this coming week!
I've got your Thanksgiving recovery plan right here with this superbly flavourful and fulfilling pumpkin soup that is a meal in of itself. You may have noticed if you are a regular reader that I'm on a pumpkin theme this week! I hope you have already enjoyed my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin recipe and then slathered pumpkin on your beautiful face with this Pumpkin Enzyme Mask .
Now let's make soup!
*This soup has so much wonderful flavour all on it's own that you might not even need to add the curry powder. I love the brand simply organic and the curry powder added such a wonderful flavour to the soup.
Have you ever noticed when you eat soup it's just not satisfying enough as a meal and you're still hungry? This is because you were likely missing a key ingredient -- protein. Which makes this soup an ideal meal! The chickpeas provide a wonderful source of fulfilling protein and the coconut milk is full of good fat.
I loved this soup so much I made a double batch of it so I can freeze some and enjoy it again in a couple of weeks.
Back to that Thanksgiving recovery plan I talked about above -- here are some healthy and absolutely delicious meal ideas:
