Today I am very excited to share with you Roasted Tomato Pumpkin Soup, created in collaboration with The Jungle Farm using their fresh sugar pumpkin, onions and leeks. In exchange for creating easy and delicious recipes for The Jungle Farm I will receive fresh locally grown fruits and vegetables. The Jungle Farm, centrally located in Alberta is a family orientated farm committed to providing locally grown quality fresh produce. Along with grain farming, The Jungle Farm offers a gorgeous array of herbs, bedding plants, hanging baskets, lettuce gardens, preserves and of course fruits and vegetables. They don’t stop there; you’ll also find family and group activities such as wagon rides, corn maze, farm animals and field trips. You can find out a whole lot more about The Jungle Farm at www.thejunglefarm.com
My personal favourite is the U pick fruits and vegetables and the vegetable box programs. Over the spring and summer months they offer a weekly vegetable box that includes that week’s seasonal bounty, cleaned, packed and ready for pick up. Along with each box is a weekly e-newsletter highlighting The Jungle Farm events and providing recipes for some of the items included in that week’s box. This is where I come in, working with produce from The Jungle Farm providing a spattering of wonderful, easy to follow recipes to help you use the items in your weekly vegetable box. So be sure to check out the recipe links provided in your newsletter, you just might find something interesting and delicious. I encourage all visitors to my site to roam around, get to know me and look at all recipes that may interest you.
Roasted Tomato Pumpkin Soup using The Jungle Farm fresh pumpkin, onions and leeks is healthy, luscious and delicious swirled with sour cream and topped with crispy leeks. You’ll love this recipe because of the rich flavour that develops from roasting the pumpkin and tomatoes. All ingredients are then added to one pot to make it super easy to put together. It makes a big pot and freezes very well too. Although this is a simple recipe overall it does require a little extra time due to the roasting, so it makes for a wonderful weekend soup when you might have a little more time.
I look forward to creating and sharing many more recipes using local, quality fresh produce from The Jungle Farm and encourage those following today to find me on their favourite social media platform. You can find my Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook links on the homepage.
