This delicious and nutritious Halloween-themed soup is not only in line with the Ideal Protein program but also perfect for adding a little festive flair to your celebrations.
How to Make the Delicious Protein-Packed Pumpkin Soup
For the Pumpkin Soup:
- 2 cups of pureed pumpkin (from a can or fresh)
- 1 ½ cups of Ideal Protein Chicken or Vegetable Soup Mix
- 4 cups of water
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Fresh chives or parsley for garnish
For the Spiderweb Garnish (Optional):
- Plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
- A piping bag or a small plastic sandwich bag with a corner cut off
- Begin the Spell: In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the finely chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté them until they become soft and translucent.
- Enchant with Spices: Add the ground cumin and ginger to the pot, stirring for another minute to release their magical flavors.
- Brew the Potion: Pour in the pureed pumpkin, Ideal Protein Chicken or Vegetable Soup Mix, and water. Stir this enchanting mixture well, ensuring that all the ingredients combine harmoniously.
- Simmer and Let Magic Happen: Bring the potion to a simmer and let it work its magic for about 15-20 minutes. During this time, the soup will thicken, and the flavors will meld together beautifully.
- Season to Taste: Season the soup with salt and pepper according to your personal taste. This step adds the final touch of enchantment to your brew.
- Craft a Spiderweb (Optional): If you’d like to add an extra layer of spookiness, fill a piping bag or a small plastic sandwich bag with Greek yogurt or sour cream. Carefully pipe a spiderweb design on the surface of the soup. The more intricate, the better!
- Serve with a Dash of Magic: To serve, garnish the soup with freshly chopped chives or parsley. The vibrant green adds a pop of color and a touch of life to your Halloween creation.
