Roasted Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

Pumpkin and sweet potato are among the best combinations for soup. Roasting them adds further depth of flavour, with the smokiness enhancing the natural sweetness and saltiness of the vegetables.

  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1.3L vegetable stock
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
