Roasted Pumpkin Soup

Roasted Pumpkin Soup
Roasted Pumpkin Soup

A wonderful, hearty soup, that tastes so incredible it needs very little seasoning! This is a certified hug-in-a-bowl, perfect for an Autumn night snuggled in front of a TV or an open fire.

Cinnamon, the classic pumpkin spice, shines through here, combining its gentle heat with the punchy cumin and zesty orange to create a wonderfully gentle, balanced soup. Goes great on its own for a healthy meal, or with a slice of buttered sourdough for a treat!
