Spicy Pumpkin Soup RecipeSpicy Pumpkin Soup. Simple and delicious. Great for those who want to lose weight.

Many people know that pumpkin is extremely rich in vitamins such as A, C and vitamin-E that’s why it can help greatly in keeping our eyesight sharp.

What’s a little less known is that the pumpkin can keep us  feeling full for longer on fewer calories. 100 g provides only 26 calories and contains no saturated fats or cholesterol.  This is why the pumpkin is recommended as part of many weight loss programs.

I recently experimented with a new way of making the pumpkin soup and we all loved it, so I am sharing the recipe.
