The Orange Autumn Soup

Updated on November 18, 2017

Super healthy autumn meal

This soup is really easy to make and it's also super nutritious!

This recipe includes a lot of goodies. We have shallot, a variation of more known onion, but much more aromatic and a bit more rare.

The main ingredient is of course the Hokkaido squash, one of the most popular pumpkin. It can be cooked with or without its shell, which is (against first impression) soft and smooth. Pumpkins are healthy and nutritious food, with great benefits for our eyesight, weight loss, healthy skin and boosting our immune system.

Next we have the ginger. Benefits of a ginger root go from treating nausea, morning sickens, reducing soreness, lowering blood sugar to reducing menstrual pain and preventing cancer.

There is also a sweet potato, great friend of our health. It's full of antioxidant, high in vitamins and a great source of vitamin C. Surely we can't forget on it's versatility and warm sweet taste.

Last but not least we have a turmeric, the wonder spice. It increases the antioxidant capacity in our body, improves brain function, lowers risk for heart disease, prevents cancer, beats depression and probably much more.

All this ingredients are working together as a super strong tool for disease prevention and with meal like this we can really help our body fighting all the viruses and bacteria attacking us in this colder days.
