Carrot Pumpkin Soup


This soup is a perfect side dish to cool you off on a warm summer day.  I love carrots and pumpkin, therefore the tasty combo of these two delicious fibrous veggies makes a delicious soup.

Carrots are an excellent source of antioxidant compounds and the richest vegetable source of the pro-vitamin A carotenes and pumpkin is loaded with beta-carotene and zinc.
