Comfort food at its best, let Pumpkin Black Bean Soup be your secret weapon in defense of friendship. Put together this rich and fragrant rusty-brown soup in a flash with canned ingredients from your pantry, or more slowly with dried black beans you cook yourself. Directions for the easy way and the beans-from-scratch way are included. Pumpkin finally gets a reprieve from its sugar and spice gig in this savory combo with black beans and cumin.
This bowl is a perfect year-round healer when you are feeling under the weather. The simple ginger-turmeric tea and coconut milk broth is as easy as boiling water, and would make a nutritious snack all on it’s own. The whole thing comes together with no fuss in under 20 minutes. It’s just the thing if a little virus, heartache, or disappointment has you down. The gingery goodness will have you feeling as sprightly as a bright yellow daffodil in no time.
A hot bowl of soup sends a message: I’m Ok. Are you Ok? I’m here. Together we’ll keep our chins up. You are important. I am glad for you in my life. Take nourishment. Following these simple rules of thumb, you can have a creamy but cream-less pureed soup once a week all winter long and never grow bored. The same goes for the herbal drizzle. This really is a choose-your-own-adventure bowl of goodness.
