Fresh Citrus Pumpkin Soup Recipe

Fresh Citrus Pumpkin Soup RecipeI always love cooking soup in the fall with fresh pumpkin.  This pumpkin soup recipe has interesting citrus undertones of lemon and orange lending a wonderful flavor to the soup.

Fresh pumpkin is very healthful.  It is an incredible source of vitamin A and is also a significant contributor of vitamin C, iron, and potassium.  The other fun part of using fresh pumpkin is roasting the seeds harvested from the gourd.

This Chinese Hot Pot recipe always sits in my “favorites” recipe pile.  You will find the aromas that emanate from this pot to be amazing, perfect for a fall or winter day- loved by kids and adults alike.

This gluten free recipe is very easily amended for a vegetarian version.  I have meat in these pictures, but I always make two pots as I am vegetarian and gluten free.  I originally made this recipe with seitan (wheat gluten) and cannot believe I ever did that!!  Of course, using tofu or gluten free tempeh are wonderful substitutes.

Don’t be discouraged by the ingredient list, as this recipe is very quick and easy to assemble.
