Pumpkin Soup

As the weather begins to cool, we always find ourselves craving a nice big bowl of soup! Soups are such a great way to up your veggie intake whilst requiring very minimal preparation, meaning more time to spend in front of the fire. Enjoy with some fresh bread from your local bakery and this meal is complete!
