An easy and delicious Roast Pumpkin Soup with sweet potato, and lightly scented with cinnamon. Roasting the vegetables first gives the soup more depth and flavour. I recommend making a double batch!
TYPES OF PUMPKINS
Feel free to use pumpkin, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, or a combination.
SERVING SOUP AS A STARTER
I once served this soup as a starter at a cocktail party and it was an instant hit. Poured into little espresso cups, they were a dainty surprise to our guests and it set the tone nicely for the canapés which followed. Allow guests to top up with a big jug of soup nearby.
