Let’s start the day after Halloween with a healthy soup, shall we? I can’t even look at a Coffee Crisp bar today, so I figured a healthy soup recipe was in order for everyone to start detoxing a little bit from the Halloween excess.

This soup combines three of my favorite things, pumpkin, chickpeas and edamame.

a bowl of Pumpkin Soup topped with whipping cream, sprinkled with pepper and salt

There is no milk or cream added to this soup unless you wish to top it with either whipped cream (plain, not sweet) or sour cream. Hey, a little coconut cream always makes things better too!

So who else is suffering from a Halloween candy coma today? My children certainly are. They had far too much fun last night, stayed up far too late and are more than a little cranky today. Oh, I feel like I should have sent apology letters to the teachers today. Last year the kids had the day off school, we slept in, recuperated, it was so lovely. This year, not only is it a school day after Halloween, it’s Friday. The kids are done by Friday, they are over the school week, they just want to be at home and relax.

So, tired kids, candy comas and done with school?


I am off to judge the Downtown Chili Cook Off today for the fourth year in a row! This is one of my favorite food competitions all year and I am so excited to go. If you have time, stop on by and say hi, eat some chili and see the great entertainment going on!

Happy Friday!

    Where can you buy Vegeta? I checked at Sobeys and Walmart with no luck. What could I use instead of vegeta?

    • thekitchenmagpie says

      Ladb The Italian Centre here in Edmonton, or a really good quality vegetable boullion would work as well!

    I would dearly love a Coffee Crisp. 🙂 But this soup sound marvelous too – simple, nourishing, comforting. 🙂
