Savory Fall Soup Recipe: Coconut Pumpkin Curry Soup

Savory Fall Soup Recipe: Coconut Pumpkin Curry Soup

Pumpkins for everyone!!!

That’s how I feel when I walk into a store and I eyeball a gorgeous array of pumpkins of every persuasion!

I want to open my arms like Maria in The Sound of Music and twirl in the middle of store–yes, pumpkins are my fall spirit animal (gourd?).

Decorating for fall is a ritual of sorts–first the beautiful pumpkins inside and out, then the fall wreath on the front door and of course, a fine assortment of mums. 🙂

Fall makes me crave crockpot cooking, soups and stews.

I love turning on the fireplace finally and celebrating a cold brisk walk in the evenings after dinner.

The trick of course is to make sure your cooking is still on point and not leading you down the wrong road setting you up for holiday weight gain (this is when it starts folks!).

One of my favorite recipes that will boost your beta carotene and satisfy your taste buds is my Coconut Curry Pumpkin Soup recipe–have you tried it? Easy, delicious and the whole fam will LOVE it!
