A warm, satisfying vegetarian pumpkin soup for any chilly winter night!

We still have one holiday left before the January health craze hits, but I’m ready now.

See you next year, egg nog. Ciao, Christmas candy. Sionara, sweet treats. Give me vegetables!

Salads, big platters of roasted veggies and warm, satisfying soups are what I’ll be making for the foreseeable future. Nothing bland or boring, of course. Just food that makes us all feel good, after a month (or more) of frequent indulgence.

Today, I made this Curry Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup. It’s creamy, hearty, and slightly sweet with just a hint of spice, so it appealed to our whole family – a big win, as any parent knows.

I used coconut milk here, since nothing complements curry and squash more than creamy coconut. But you can use low-fat milk or even just more broth if you prefer.

One bowl of this and your body won’t even remember that extra piece of fudge you ate on Christmas 😉
