Feeling the winter chills? Here in Toowoomba the temperature's just 1.7 Degrees Centigrade, and a warm, nutritious soup's just the ticket to provide some inner warmth. Here's a great recipe I found online and changed to make it more nutritious & tasty.

Organic Pumpkin Soup Recipe

  • Garnishings - Sour Cream, Chopped Chives, Cracked Black Pepper
