As summer comes to a close (tear), I find myself craving the familiar flavours of fall: pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and several kinds of squash. I have to admit, I am a fall lover- the smell, crisp air, beautiful colours, and the fact that I get to wear scarves and boots and other layering essentials- all make it a winner in my books!
Today I found myself craving soup- a hearty soup that would actually satisfy me for a few hours. I settled on this scrumptious pumpkin/coconut soup. I was inspired by Elena’s recipe; but having done this on a whim, I made some major substitutions and added some other delicious flavours while I was at it.
As September nears, I find myself making double and triple batches of everything. The beginning of the school year can be a very busy time for me and I enjoy having tasty options like this ripe for the picking- straight from my freezer, into my lunch bag!
