4 cloves of garlic
1 Tbsp grape seed oil
3 Cups of water

2. Peel the skin off the pumpkin and carrots and cut everything into small 1/2 inch pieces and add to the pot
3. On medium heat keep stirring the vegetables so they don’t stick to the bottom of the pot for about 10 minutes
4. Pour the water into the pot and increase the heat to bring to a boil. Then reduce back to medium heat and cook for 15-20 minutes or until veggies are soft
5. Add the salt and seasonings to taste
