We love Creamy Pumpkin Soup here at home. It’s one of Ykaie’s favorite soups and she often requests for it especially on a rainy day like today. When I say creamy, I make it really creamy but now that I am trying to heal my acid reflux (which I’m gonna share on a separate post at www.mommypeach.com soon), I have to deviate from my usual recipe and make an acid-reflux friendly Creamy Pumpkin Soup.
To make it acid reflux-friendly, I didn’t use onions and sautéed the garlic in very little olive oil. I also used creamy soy milk instead of heavy cream. You may use chicken stock or chicken cube to make it more flavorful or you can choose to just use water and make this vegan.
I am hoping to share more acid reflux friendly recipe in the following days to maybe help other people who are looking for acid reflux friendly meals they can add to their diet.
