Healthy No Oil Or Butter Pumpkin Basil Soup#Soupswappers

This is a warm soup, taste just delicious, no oil or butter. The basil leaves in this soup renders a beautiful and delicious aroma to it, I should lifts this soup to another level.

I, try to avoid using oil or butter to make a soup. For me a soup is something that is healthy and should have the natural flavor and taste of the veggies that are used to make it.

When I made this soup without oil or butter, was, apprehensive to serve my guest, whether he would like it or not. But,  he was so happy to have this flavorful soup. Took a second helping too.  Now this has become our family favorite. Do give this a  try and I am sure you too will love it.

300 Grams Red Pumpkin - cut into small pieces
