  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  2. Sautee the veggies for 2 – 3 minutes or until softened
  3. Stir in pumpkin puree, milk and veggie stock and allow to simmer for 10 mins
  4. Optional: Blend soup using an immersion blender or regular blender to get rid of any chunks of garlic and shallots then pour mixture back into pot
  5. Thin out the soup with more stock or milk if desired, depenidng on how creamy you want it!
  6. Allow to simmer for another 5 minutes, taste and adjust seasonings as you like it. I added a little more chilli.
