Winter is upon us and there’s nothing quite like a warming soup, enjoyed with fresh homemade bread.
I have tried lots of variations to perfect pumpkin soup, but this combination of honey, garlic, herbs & kumara is divine and roasting the pumpkin first, makes the soup all the more full of of flavour.
This soup freezes well…perfect to heat up for ravenous family members who you want to ensure are getting healthy nutritional goodness.
It is perfect for an entree, lunch or light meal. And I hope that you love this recipe as much as my family does!
