Pumpkin Hamburger Soup

I love Autumn and everything associated with it: sweaters, boots, blanket scarves, and of course pumpkin. When I was a kid my mom always made a Hamburger Soup. It consisted of ground beef, tomatoes, corn, and macaroni noodles along with some Italian spices. It was always one of my favourite dishes but now that I follow a Paleo Autoimmune Protocol diet, many of those ingredients are off limits.

In recreating a hamburger soup it was important to me to make it a feel-good comfort food just like the one my mom use to make, while at the same time making it AIP compliant and nutritious. So, I switched out the tomatoes for pumpkin puree and did away with the corn and noodles, adding in a yam and veggies instead.

This soup is thick and creamy thanks to the pumpkin and packs a whole lot of nutrients. Be sure to make your beef bone broth ahead of time. I made mine in my instant pot and it only took 120 minutes!

Where I live, it is currently Winter, but I know for many of you it is still Autumn. So enjoy this soup and if it is Winter where you are, then be a rebel and eat the soup anyways!
