Magic pumpkin soup

14964243_10211049536900048_1685636217_oI am embracing the pumpkin season this year. Each time I go shopping and I see this pile of nice round orange things I cannot help myself. I usually have a recipe in mind, but we are only two of us in our household, so whole pumpkin goes a long way. Usually, after 1-2 recipes I am done a large slice of this gorgeous thing is lying alone.

In these cases I always use it up in this magic pumpkin soup. Why it is so magic, you may ask, and here’s why:

I believe there are certain dishes that are the best in their original version, like shepherds pie or chili. However, I recently changed my opinion about burgers – I think vegan burger is a great way to introduce more proteins into my diet and also add another texture to a food. I’v tried several recipes and I have to admit I finally found few variations I likes, and, most importantly, they were good enough  for my husband to like them too!
