With Halloween coming up tomorrow, you want to make sure you and others around you are well-fed! Whether you are trick or treating, partying, giving out candy, or just enjoying yourself, a good meal is essential. That’s why Hungry and I have come up with the ultimate Halloween Soup. It’s really not as spooky as it sounds–well it is terrifyingly good, I suppose. Aaaand it doesn’t photograph well nor is it pretty at all, but remember LOOKS don’t matter when it comes to deliciousness. It’s a very simple recipe, but yields terrific results. It’s perfect for the autumn weather–will bring you warm, happy feelings as you slurp it down.

This Halloween Soup is perfect for that scary, brisk day. It is a crowd-pleaser and a family-pleaser. Did we mention how important it is to have a full stomach for festivities? Especially for your little ones for trick or treating! We used Silk Coconutmilk to make sure there was no soy or dairy milk in order to accommodate our friends! It also brings out that richness that goes well with a Fall soup, but leaves out the immense calories! We definitely appreciate that.

Enjoy this Halloween with friends, family, and beyond. Remember to be safe, don’t drink and drive, and don’t let your little ones out without a full belly! No one likes hangry children (yes I said hangry)…or adults for that matter. So fill yourself with goodness and have a very Happy Halloween. And as always… stay hungry and fit!
