Pumpkin and Vegetable Soup

It won’t be long before summer is a distant memory and we’ll be looking for delicious, comfort food to warm our tummies … and here it is … Pumpkin and Vegetable Soup. This is a great soup recipe to whip up at the end of the week when you open the vegetable crisper in the fridge and find lots of leftover veggies. Instead of wasting them, throw them in a pot and make a soup. You can include almost any vegetables you like but this particular combination is one of my favourites. Enjoy!
