Why not try?

This soup is abundant in the antioxidant beta-carotene thanks to the delicious pumpkin and gives us a healthy dose of folic acid from the beetroot.

The cinnamon gives this dish that extra taste and needed iron, calcium and manganese. It helps stabilize blood sugar levels, which is great for weight loss.

Just smelling cinnamon alone is said to boost cognitive function and memory, so give the soup a good whiff before you dig in.

Optionally you can top it with some fresh yoghurt or add a slice of crusty sourdough bread.

(Please use organic/local/sustainable where possible)

1
Peel and cut up the beetroot and pumpkin into bite size pieces
2
Sauté the onions in the coconut oil on a medium heat until they become translucent. Add the pumpkin, beetroot, nutmeg, salt and cinnamon to the pan. Sauté all the veggies for 5-10 minutes
3
Add the stock and bring it to a boil, then remove the pan from the heat and blend the mixture with a hand blender or food processor until the soup is smooth
4
Return the mixture to a medium heat and cook for another 10 minutes, then serve hot
