Spiced Pumpkin Soup for #WeekdaySupper

This festive week of #Weekday Suppers from Family Foodie brings you a collection of simple, delicious meals to get you through the Christmas period. Today, on Boxing Day, I’m offering a Spiced Pumpkin soup that’s full of flavour and easy to make. 

With a few root vegetables roasted in the oven, a blend of spices and any red wine you’ve got leftover, this soup can be prepared in no time. It’s the perfect Boxing Day meal; effortless to prepare and a warming, nutritious but not overly heavy meal after the glut of Christmas Day.

Spiced Pumpkin Soup

I used pumpkin, butternut squash and sweet potato and a spice blend of allspice, cinammon, ginger and tumeric, giving a mulled wine flavour to the rich vegetable base. Enjoy!
