This “Pumpkin Turmeric Soup” is something utterly delicious and perfect for those cold winter nights!

If you scroll internet these days, almost every single thing will have this wonder root, “Turmeric”. From Turmeric lattes to juices to golden milk to smoothies, you will find this trend going very strong. I am yet to join that Turmeric Milk bandwagon, but I thought why not create a recipe using this ingredient, and it is how this Pumpkin Turmeric Soup came about. 

Since my childhood I quite disliked milk and when it comes to Turmeric Milk or Golden milk, the fancy word for our Indian “Haldi che doodh” was something I could never stand. The smell of milk would make me gag and believe you me; it was always given to me when I was sick. So when I see the new trend of Golden Milk, all I remember is me poorly, coughing and sniffling. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t yearn for fresh Turmeric! 

I was thinking of using fresh turmeric root in different recipes, and I thought since I can’t have the turmeric milk, why not create a Soup recipe instead. 

This Pumpkin, Turmeric Soup is packed with delicious flavours, it has that dreamy creamy texture, and it is delicious. 

Since I was adding fresh Turmeric in this soup, I thought of adding some fresh Asian ingredients and trust me I did justice to it. 

I am posting a Thermomix recipe today, but I will soon post the stovetop recipe.

So this is how you make this beauty!
