Creamy Vegan Pumpkin Spice Soup with Protein

 Enjoy the flavors of fall in this thick and creamy pumpkin soup. This creamy soup is filled with flavor and packed with protein. Perfect for a fall meal.

 When the weather outside changes to cold, I start craving soup. There is something special about soup that makes a cold day more bearable. While a bowl of soup is thought of as a before-the-meal item, soup can be the main part of the meal when you add nutritious ingredients like protein powder. This pumpkin spice soup is packed with protein and made with plant-based ingredients so it is perfect for a vegan meal.

 The best part of this delicious thick & creamy soup is how easy it is to make. So grab a soup pot and start making the best-ever pumpkin soup. This pumpkin soup recipe serves 2 but the ingredients can easily be doubled to serve a family. You will also love that this flavorful soup is made with gluten-free ingredients.

Protein Packed Pumpkin Spice Vegan Soup is

+ Plant-Based

- Easy to Make

+ Vegan

+ Loaded with Protein

+ Gluten-Free

+ Creamy

+ Full of Flavor

+ Load with Nutrients

+ Perfect for a Meal

 The best thing about homemade soup is that you can control the ingredients and make a meal that’s packed with nutrient-dense, beneficial ingredients. Here are the healthy ingredients in this pumpkin soup recipe.

- Natural Protein Powder: A scoop of unflavored protein powder adds an additional 21 grams of plant-based protein to this healthy soup. My favorite vegan protein powder is made by Nuzest and is the best allergy-friendly protein that is made with clean ingredients.

- Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is an excellent source of beneficial medium-chain fatty acids, and it helps to support a healthy response to inflammation. This is my preferred brand of organic coconut oil.

- Cashew Butter: Cashew butter adds a decadent creaminess to this soup, while also supplying plant-based protein, fiber, and antioxidants.

- Pumpkin: Pumpkin is low in calories, and contains fiber, vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, and potassium.

- Turmeric: Turmeric is an impressive spice that’s rich in antioxidants and helps to support a healthy inflammatory response. I love this mild earthy-sweet turmeric.

The best protein powder to add to all your favorite recipes

 One of the healthy ingredients in this fall soup is protein powder. Adding protein powder to your favorite recipes is a great way to add protein to your meals. Now before you start reaching for your smoothie-making protein powder, you need to know that most protein powders don't do well in recipes as they add a strange flavor or don't mix in well. Most protein powders can also change the texture of a recipe.

 If you are looking for the best protein powder for recipes, you need to try Nuzest Just Natural Clean and Lean Protein. This plant-based protein powder is simply made with premium European golden peas and nothing else. So it is a perfect complete protein for all your cooking and baking recipes. This natural protein powder blends well into recipes and does not change the taste of your recipe. Nuzest protein can also be used in place of flour in all your gluten-free recipes. Nuzest is also allergy-friendly and contains no soy, dairy, or nuts.  I love using Nuzest protein in my gluten-free brownies

Don't skimp on the spices!

 This yummy soup gets its flavor from spices. So make sure to add all the spices to the pumpkin spice soup. The spices that I used in this fall soup recipe are garlic, turmeric, paprika, and black pepper. No need to add salt to this soup as there is plenty of salt in the vegetable broth. 

Did you know that there are several varieties of paprika? The two main paprikas are Spanish paprika and Hungarian paprika. All paprikas are a mixture of types of capsicum peppers, and the mixture chosen will determine the heat or sweetness level of the final product. The flavor profile of Hungarian paprika and Spanish paprika is very different. Substituting one for the other will change the taste of the dish. Hungarian is generally more intense and sweeter. To learn more about the different types of paprika, check out the Selefina Spice website.

 I like using Hungarian paprika in my pumpkin spice soup but any type of paprika will add awesome flavor to this flavorful soup. Spices are a great way to add flavor to meals without using oils and butter. Check out how spices made plain white rice into delicious Afghani Rice.

Warm bread with butter is a must for soup

The perfect item to serve with a bowl of warm soup is homemade bread. A thick slice of crusty bread slathered with butter (make mine vegan), just adds that perfect touch to this homemade pumpkin spice soup.
