Is roasted pumpkin soup not the BEST THING EVER!So creamy and pumpkin-y. So sweet and not to mention good for you. When we were little my brother and I HATED pumpkin. Not for any good reason other than back then, vegetables sucked. They were boring and unexciting and bread, meat and cheese were better.  But seriously, what were we thinking? My favourite ways to eat pumpkin are: this soup, coated in turmeric, cinnamon and garlic and cooked like this or lastly, in a mash. I have an awesome mash recipe that I use in my lunch delivery service too - I'll share that with you soon.
