Turning Alkaline

My journey through food and nutrition to better health.

Easy Miso Pumpkin Soup

My last entry of the day.  So far this detox, seems manageable.  I’m not suffering from any hunger or intense cravings despite reducing my calorie intake by around 500 calories.  That said, this is really only day one, however it does feel promising.  Furthermore, the food has been pretty good, especially the Ginger Soup from last night.  So good in fact, I want to make it again tomorrow.

Tonight’s soup was also pretty decent again a good balance of flavours and packed full with nutrition.  The recipe for this one was adapted from one in the ‘Clean’ book, yet instead of making it with raw ingredients, I cooked mine.  It just didn’t appeal to me eating it lukewarm.

The ingredients:


1 tsp rosemary (fresh if possible)

2 stalks of celery

1/2 kabocha pumpkin (diced and steamed)

1 tsp nutmeg/cinnamon

2 Tbsp chick pea miso

5 cloves of garlic

3 cups of boiling water

1/2 red onion

1/2 cup mixed cashews, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds (soaked for 2 hrs)



  1. Drain the nuts then bend them in 1/4 cup of pure water until smooth and creamy
  2. saute the red onion until translucent
  3. add the garlic
  4. add the steamed pumpkin
  5. Add the 3 cups of water, miso, nutmeg/cinnamon & cayenne pepper, and then add the blended nuts
  6. Puree until smooth then serve.
