Recipe: Raw Vegan Pumpkin Soup – Hearty Soulfood

Autumn is approaching, pumpkins are in peak season, and it’s the first time I’ve been sticking to a fully raw vegan lifestyle for 5 months now. Pumpkin has always been one of my most favorite vegetables and pumpkin soup a go-to recipe for me during autumn. Thus, I don’t want to miss out on a creamy and comfy pumpkin soup as a raw vegan and came up with this delicious and super satisfying recipe! 🙂

“I can smell autumn dancing in the breeze.
The sweet chill of pumpkin, and crisp sunburned leaves.”

Have you ever tried eating raw pumpkin? Ok, I must admit that taking a bite from a raw pumpkin does not feel really appealing; however, creating this smoothly blended soup in combination with some other flavorful ingredients definitely hits the spot!

This recipe requires a high-speed blender for perfect consistency, and you can blend your soup up to 2 or 3 minutes to create a warmer temperature, yet still keeping it raw. You can decorate your soup with any toppings of your choice: nuts, seeds, and sprouts add a crunchy texture, while different herbs will make it even more flavorful.
