Soups: Alkaline Pumpkin Tomato Soup
Pumpkins are not only alkaline, but also very low in calories which make them an ideal vegetable for anybody who watches his/her weight.
Moreover, pumpkins are rich in potassium, magnesium, zinc, fiber, iron as well as beta-carotene (antioxidant), which are really good at neutralizing free radicals.
Ingredients for 8 servings
1 quart of water (if available: alkaline water)
400g fresh tomatoes, peeled and diced
1 medium-sized sweet pumpkin
5 yellow onions
1 tbsp. Cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp. sea salt or organic salt
Pinch of Cayenne pepper
Your favorite herbs (optional)
Handful of fresh parsley
Cut onions in small pieces and sauté with some oil in a big pot.
Cut the pumpkin in half, then cut off the stem and scoop out the seeds.
Finally scoop out the flesh and put it in the pot.
Add also the tomatoes and the water and cook for around 20 minutes.
Then pour the soup into a food processor and mix well for a few seconds. Season with salt, pepper and your favorite herbs.
Pour into bowls and garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy your alkalizing soup!
