Well it’s official. My 20’s are now behind me and I’ve joined the 30’s club. I think I’ll say goodbye to one decade and hello to the next with a steaming hot bowl of Pumpkin Carrot Fennel Soup, complete with roasted pepitas.
Nothing is more comforting than a hot bowl of soup when you’re having a mixed feelings kind of a day. On the hand, I do feel much more like an adult now that I’m 30 ????. On the other hand...I feel much more like an adult ????. Kind of a “Yes! Wait what?” day today.
My birthday was yesterday but I’m definitely still adjusting. I don’t know why but I keep getting that fluttering feeling in my stomach whenever I think of my age ????. It’s totally ridiculous but this birthday has been a little nerve racking.
Nevertheless, onward to a whole new decade full of amazing things! Like pumpkin carrot fennel soup ????????. And don't forget those roasted pepitas!
This soup though. Honestly, I haven’t made a true soup in a long time, I’m definitely more of a stew person. The last one that I shared was the butternut squash soup from year ago!
Quite often when I’ve tried a pumpkin soup, it’s been on the sweet side, which is not my preference for a soup. This pumpkin carrot fennel has just a touch of sweet, from the pumpkin and fennel with a pinch of cinnamon. Otherwise it’s all savory business and it’s de-licious. Jam packed with veggies too and you’d never even know it!
Also I topped it with some freshly roasted pepitas, lightly tossed in a little olive oil and a pinch of salt. They only take about 5 minutes and they’re SO tasty, I ate a bunch of them right off the pan!
Alright guys. Excuse me while I deal with my 30-ness and make sure to grab a bowl of pumpkin carrot fennel soup before the season is out!Print
