This hearty soup combines the flavors of celery, carrots, pumpkin, and cauliflower to create a comforting and nutritious dish. The celery and carrots add a subtle sweetness and crunch to the soup, while the pumpkin and cauliflower provide a creamy and savory base.
To make the soup, start by sautéing the celery and carrots in a large pot until they are tender. Then, add the pumpkin and cauliflower and continue cooking until the vegetables are soft and fragrant. Next, blend the mixture until it is smooth and creamy, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
This soup is perfect for cooler weather, and can be enjoyed as a light meal on its own or paired with a slice of crusty bread. It’s also a great way to incorporate more vegetables into your diet, as celery, carrots, pumpkin, and cauliflower are all rich in vitamins and minerals.
