For something super healthy, super nutritious, and super delicious, this soup is definitely for you! I had the basic ingredients in my head that I wanted to eat, and along came this soup!
- In a pot, add the olive oil under medium heat. Add the onions, garlic and ginger and leave to cook for at least 5 minutes
- Add the pumpkin and mix well together. Add the salt, pepper, cinnamon, paprika and chilli powder. Mix well over medium/high heat for 5-10 minutes
- Once the pumpkin begins to soften, add the quinoa followed by 4 cups of hot water. Add the bay leaf and stock cube. Cover and leave for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. If the soup needs more water, add another 1/2 or 1 cup of hot water
- After 10 minutes, add the chickpeas and thyme. Taste and adjust seasoning, then leave for a further 5 minutes. Check the pumpkin is soft when cut before serving
It really is as easy as that! Quick, so healthy and a good filling soup to enjoy!
