Divine and delicious roast pumpkin and cauliflower keto soup recipe

Pumpkins are delicious. It seems such as waste just to carve them up for Halloween and them throw them away. After my pumpkin photo-shoot, I had a few leftover pumpkins that demanded to be cooked and eaten. And rightly so. After making my pumpkin curry, I used the last of my munchkin pumpkins to create this divinely delicious pumpkin and cauliflower keto soup recipe.

Pumpkins, perfect for a keto soup recipe

Since starting on the keto diet, I am continually on the hunt for low carb options for my meals and recipe development. You should have heard my whoops of delight when I found out that pumpkins only have 7g of carbohydrate per 100g. A brilliant vegetable for food photography and brilliant for creating this keto soup recipe. The joy of pumpkins are, they are so versatile, great for savoury or sweet cooking. I love to throw chunks of pumpkin in with my roast chicken as a keto alternative for roast potatoes.

The secret to this soup recipe is roasting the pumpkin and the cauliflower. This brings out the flavour of the cauliflower gives the soup its richness and texture. The pumpkin has a sublime sweetness. I don’t think you can have too much of this soup!
