So it is finally Autumn – my favourite season! Not only because I am born in October but also because I love foggy cold morning walks, warm sunny afternoons, and cosy evenings by candlelight.
I also love pumpkins, so today I want to share with you my very easy pumpkin soup recipe.
First you will need a pumpkin.
Today I used a little organic Hokkaido. You just have to chop it into little dices about 3 cm wide. Put them on a baking tray and season them generously with your favourite spices. I used salt, pepper, garlic powder, turmeric, paprika, and some chilli powder. Now sprinkle the dices with olive oil. Roast them in the oven for about 30 minutes at 180 ° C.
Bring 2 l of water to the boil, add one or two vegetable stock cubes. Stir well until they are fully dissolved. Add the roasted pumpkin and blend in the pot. Alternatively you can blend the pumpkin first and add to the soup. Cook for 5 minutes, then turn off the heat. Now add the coconut milk or alpro soya cuisine or any other cream alternative of your choice. Stir well and enjoy!
That was quick! Roasting the pumpkin in the oven until it is tender makes all the difference! Bon appetit!
By the way Turmeric is truly a superfood and you should use it more often. It decreases your risk for cancer, is anti-inflammatory, supports detoxification, balances your blood sugar, and even helps improving your cognitive functions
The changing colours in nature are always a huge inspiration for my patterns and illustrations. You can find my new patterns in my shops

As you might know by now I love food. I love cooking, baking, eating, and drawing food. When I entered the #100dayproject challenge this year I didn´t have to think very long about what I want to do as a project – of course I wanted to draw food! Now I am almost done with my 100 sketches and I must say I feel that I have improved my skills. So if you want to become better or an expert in a certain field, practice it for 100 days and you will feel an impact.
You can find my food sketches on Instagram searching for #susisveganfoodillustrations
Now that I have sketched so many foods, the next obvious step for me is to illustrate recipes. So I was very happy when the very talented Ohn Mar Win introduced her skillshare course: Food Illustration-
Design your favourite fruity recipe
Once you know how to do the recipe cards there is no stopping. I have already created a handful of them and even submitted some to the inspiring
They draw and cook Website
If you like drawing food or illustrating recipes why not start a project today.
Happy creating! Remember: Everything starts with a simple sketch. And with PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE you will get better!
Update: Now you can find my recipes on the They draw and cook website, too! Yay!

… you will love my organic krautsalat.
And here is how to make it..
– a white cabbage
– cider vinegar
– brown sugar
– black cumin
– you can also add sliced onions or garlic if you like
– Cut the cabbage into slices (that is the most difficult part), put the slices into a bowl
– Prepare a mixture of oil, cider vinegar, salt and pepper in another small bowl and then you have to heat it up (in a pot with hot water or in the microwave)
– Add the brown sugar to the hot mixture and stir till the sugar is dissolved
– Pour the mixture over the cabbage and you ´re done!
– Put the bowl in the fridge for at least half an hour, then you can start on your vegan tzaziki!
