Spicy Black Bean, Pumpkin Soup, Gluten Free, Vegetarian

Spicy Black Bean, Pumpkin Soup Gluten Free, Vegan

Let’s be honest, nothing is more impressive than telling someone you made soup from scratch. There’s a sort of mystique around soups, especially creamy soups. Maybe it’s because we’re so used to buying them in a can that we’ve started to believe that only big companies can really get it right.

Homemade soups are a staple in our house. My family members follow a number of different diets and a homemade gluten-free, vegan soup that’s perfect for the slow carb diet, meets everyone’s needs. 

This soup is soup, but it can be more than soup. It’s thick and rich and tastes like an amazing curry sauce. I find it’s best to serve with platters of cooked meat, cooked vegetables and baked potatoes or roasted sweet potatoes so that people can add things in to make their own curry. (Super way to use up leftovers from your crockpot chicken or roasted winter vegetables!)
