Sara’s Cuban Pumpkin Soup

My chiropractor, Sara Johnson, recently passed this recipe along to me. It’s quick, easy, and delicious. Pumpkin is loaded with Vitamins C, K, and E, as well as magnesium, potassium, and iron. It also has antioxidant carotenoids, particularly alpha and beta-carotenes. Beans and pumpkin are both high in fiber. If you have the time to bake a pumpkin from scratch go for it, if not canned works just as well.

One can of pumpkin
One can of black beans
One handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
Juice of 3 limes

Warm the pumpkin and beans, top with lime and cilantro and serve!
