I think it is still cold enough to continue enjoying soup so I wanted to share this amazing Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup with you before summer begins. With its thick & velvety texture this soup nourishes both the body and the soul. Roasting the vegetables brings out their sweetness. Are you ready to try it?
This pumpkin and sweet potato soup is the simplest and easiest soup recipe that you can make. Do you like roasted vegetables? I adore them. I had to stop myself eating them as they came out of the oven or there would be none left for this soup! After you have roasted the vegetables all you have to do is blend them with water or broth. As you can see little to no effort is required to make this soup!
This recipe is healthy & nourishing. If you are new to homemade soups you will realize how easy they are to make yourself. Put some time aside to make them at the weekend and you’ll have your lunch sorted for the week (Bonus: soup can also be frozen)
This pumpkin and sweet potato soup is the perfect winter soup. it is vegan, dairy and gluten free. The soft, sweet undertones from the sweet potatoes are just delicious and also adds to the velvety texture of the soup. You won’t be disappointed!
This Winter I’m obsessed with pumpkins. You may remember a few weeks ago I made this Chickpea Pumpkin Stew and this Curried Pumpkin Soup. I never used to buy much pumpkin, until last Halloween when I ended up with 3 huge pumpkins and I started experimenting with cooking pumpkin in different ways. Since then, I fell in love with pumpkin.
