This Roasted Pumpkin Cream Soup Recipe is an easy winter soup, topped with Crispy Chickpeas. Vegan & Gluten-Free!
So I’ve been staying true to my last blog post and I am trying to empty our stock. I am taking little steps, though. So far I’ve managed to reorganize one kitchen cabinet where I keep – oh, miscellaneous stuff, from tea bags and vitamins to almonds and quinoa puffs.
I’ve bought a couple of clear plastic bins, took everything out and did inventory control. Happy to say, there were no foods with past due dates, but what was on the verge, I took out, placed in a bowl, covered with olive oil, maple syrup and gingerbread spices and placed in the oven to bake a delicious granola (recipe will be published in the upcoming weeks). The rest I reorganized in 4 sections: teas & beverages (coffee, vitamins, etc), unopened packages of nuts for baking (ugh, there are a LOT, need to use up!), half-empty and opened packages that need to be used up ASAP and a surprisingly large container of food decorations, that I use for food photography and styling. So, I am happy to report, that one shelf is under control, everything has its place and I have a general idea of the inventory and what I need to use in the upcoming weeks. But that is just one shelf.
Today I checked the pantry and fridge, and – having loads of potatoes and leeks – made a simple, but delicious leek and potato soup for lunch, that will keep for a dinner as well. I feel frugal AF!
And remember those amazing Crispy Chickpeas I made the other day? They are not only great for snacking, but I paired them with this delicious Roasted Pumpkin Cream Soup for another healthy lunch / dinner. Just look at these amazing fall colors:
So, there you go, a delicious way to use up any leftover chickpeas you may have. This soup combination is the bomb – creamy soup texture meets crispy chickpeas and an extra flavor of the blanched kale leaves for a meal with an aftertaste for more!
