Paleo Spicey Pumpkin Soup

This recipe is loaded with Vitamin C. It is perfect for the winter months, and just as good to have for the transition phases between seasons, when our immune systems can feel susceptible to colds and flu’s.

I made this in the slow cooker- it was so easy. I pre-roasted my vegetables, as I was already using the oven. But you could skip the roasting step and add them raw.

I mixed my own spices instead of using a curry paste, and the flavours were vibrant and fresh. You could use alternatives to suit your taste.
