With temps dropping, warm, creamy soups are calling my name.

This recipe marries roasted pumpkin (filled with vitamin A, fiber, and beta-carotene!) with creamy coconut and spices to create a filling dish perfect for a cozy night in, entertaining guests, or even a leftover lunch.

Turmeric ups the anti-inflammatory factor, too, which never hurts.
