Easy Pumpkin Soup Recipe For A Cancer Diet


Dairy Free Easy Pumpkin Soup Recipe For A Cancer DietBeta-carotene, the pigment responsible for pumpkin’s bright red-orange color, is a powerful immunostimulant — a substance that activates the immune system. Studies have found that beta-carotene may give your body a cancer-fighting boost by slowing cancer growth, preventing DNA damage, or even enhancing the enzymes that clear cancer-causing substances from the body. The carotenoid also accounts for more than 80 percent of the antioxidants in a serving of pumpkin. Always use organic ingredients when possible and try our Rye Bread with the pumpkin soup.

Pumpkin Soup Ingredients
(Serves 4)

  • 1 Tablespoon vegan margarine
  • 2 Tablespoons minced onions
  • 2 cups cooked or canned pumpkin (not sweetened or spiced)
  • 21/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 21/2 cups almond milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2-3 drops Tabasco sauce
  • 1/4 cup soft silken tofu
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt margarine in heavy 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and cook 2-3 minutes or until transparent. Add pumpkin, broth, milk, cloves, lemon juice, and Tabasco sauce. Stir thoroughly to blend all ingredients. Bring to a boil and then cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Blend mixture in batches. Return blended soup to saucepan and stir in tofu. Heat. Add salt, pepper, or other seasonings desired. Serve hot.

  1. I just have a pumpkin and never made a soup, so I was glad to find an easy recipe. However, why would you use margarine? Is there anything like a healthy margarine, without trans fats?
