GINGER-PUMPKIN-SOUP-WITH-CRUNCHY-KALE-&-PEPITAS-2

 

This is not your average pumpkin soup. It’s a little bit fancy and sure to be a winner with family and friends.

A little ginger and chilli provides some heat for warmth this winter and bone broth has been used as the base, providing gut healing properties. Give this ginger pumpkin soup a go, there is nothing better than a tasty soup on a cold winters day.
