Pumpkin soup





Colourful vegetables each have powerful benefits, and the orange colour is no exception. Pumpkin's orange colour comes from beta-carotene, a powerful anti-oxidant which converts into vitamin A in our body. Consuming orange coloured foods may reduce the risk of certain cancers, and it's especially beneficial for prostate health. Enjoy this heartwarming pumpkin soup on a chilly Fall day!
