Recipe: Chia-pumpkin superfood soup


A warming soup and superfood recipe that's full of health-boosting (and flavor-packed) ingredients.

pumpkin and cashew nut soup recipeWe may advocate for cool-weather smoothies, but cozying up with a warm bowl soup during fall and winter months is a necessity on par with mittens and a puffer coat. (Notice how we didn’t say Uggs.)

And since we’re always looking for more ways to incorporate superfoods into meals (and lunches at our desk), we flipped for this recipe from The Chia Co. It’s full of antioxidant-rich pumpkin, flu-fighting spices, and omega-packed chia seeds.

Curl up with a bowl on a cold, lazy Sunday, bring a batch to the office, or serve it next to your quinoa-stuffing and cranberries at Thanksgiving. —Sarah Sarway
