Roasted Pumpkin And Butternut Squash Soup From The Tummies' Kitchen
It has been cold and grey all week here in Melbourne. With no desire to spend too much time in the kitchen, a simple soup seemed like a very good idea indeed. Not a lot went into the soup but I did roast the pumpkin and squash to enhance the sweetness of the vegetables. I also followed my old winning formula by adding some tasty toppings to the soup to make it look and taste less like baby food. It was dark and very cold when bowls of "fragrant warm sunshine" were served.
