Month of August and sure, rain is falling from sky. So far, nothing worrying nor rain has flooded our area, but when it rains almost daily, our life is woman interrupted right? Potentially. Clothes taking longer to dry up and we must be careful on the roads due to puddles of water sometimes we can't see from the distance. Having said that, food must go on because we either live to eat or eat to live. If you are asking me, basically, food must enter our tummy. Whatever kinda food, but wouldn't you agree that soups (Mixed Vegetable Soup, Corn Soup & Turmeric Tomato Soup) will complete us for rainy weather? Especially for a night meal and when you don't want to pack yourself with heavy meal, yet a meal for keeping us warm and cuddly? Maybe not as in the light, runny and watery mild soups I have already mentioned (Chinese Tofu Soup & Lentil Vegetable Soup), but this thick and creamy (Creamy Avocado Dip) and a totality to veganism (Vegan Potato Curry) absolutely wonderful Vegan Pumpkin Soup, paired alongside toast (Caldo Verde, Thai Tomato Soup & Creamy Mushroom Soup). Sort of also can be considered as a cousin to my previous (Pumpkin Soup) and definitely for celebration pumpkin (Pumpkin Salted Fish Curry).
1/4 pumpkin - remove skin and seeds and cubed
1/2 inch ginger - remove skin
1/2 inch ginger - remove skin
