Last week Brittany Jaroudi gave a wonderful cooking demonstration (and tasting!) on pumpkin recipes. See Plant-Based Pittsburgh recipe page to upload her delicious yet easy recipes for Pumpkin bread, soup, granola, pasta sauce, and mini-pies.

I started to make The Blue Zones Pumpkin & Tahini Soup. However, I opened a can of sweet potato instead of pumpkin and ended up with the following recipe. It's now a staple in my cooking repertoire--very easy and yummy!



  • 2 cloves, minced garlic

  • 1 15-oz. can pumpkin puree

  • 1 15-oz. can sweet potato puree

  • ¼ cup tahini

  • 2 cups water (more for thinner soup)

  • 2 tsp. curry powder

  • juice from ½ lime

  • pepper to taste
