Here we are almost in half term with Halloween and Bonfire Night just a few days away. Why not try this tasty Pumpkin Soup, for a lovely warming treat.

Spicy Pumpkin Soup
Serves 4 – approx 100 calories per serving

375g/13oz pumpkin, roughly chopped
150g/5oz carrot, roughly chopped
300g/11oz onion, roughly chopped
100g/3½oz red lentils
1.3 litres/2¼pt vegetable or chicken stock
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp curry paste, or to taste

Put all the ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer gently for 20-25 minutes or until all the vegetables are tender. Leave the soup to cool slightly before blending in your food processor or handheld blender. Adjust seasoning to taste.

Top tips:
  Butternut squash is also ideal for this recipe as it is part of the Pumpkin family. Also a mug of our Slimtone Butternut and Red Pepper Soup would make a good Winter Warmer while enjoying the bonfire and would certainly be welcome after Trick or Treating.

***Another tasty idea for Halloween is to make up the Cream of Broccoli soup on page 27 of your Lifestyle plan. Serve in a large cauldron and you will have a hot filling “Witches Brew”…………  

There are lots more tasty soup recipes in our all new Slimtone Soup Book. It’s available in all Slimtone classes or can be ordered here either as an immediate download or posted to you as a hard copy book.
