This soup is rich in vitamin A and fibre. Part of the pumpkin will become mushy in the soup. When eaten together with the tomatoes and red beans, the soup can help in improving energy and nutrient intakes.

Besides red beans, soy beans and black-eyed peas can be added to increase the soluble fibre content which can help to lower the blood cholesterol level.
