Blogtober: Day 13 ........ Favourite Fall Recipe {Autumn Pumpkin Soup}

Blogtober isn't easy. Life had been busy but I couldn't possibly miss a foodie post!Autumn is a wonderful time of year for fresh produce and this soup is a favourite of mine, we picked up all of the ingredients 

Autumn Pumpkin Soup 

one small pumpkin, cubed
one sweet potato, cubed
two carrots, cubed
red or orange pepper, cut into large slices
four cloves garlic, unpeeled 
two small onions, cubed
1/2 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
2 pints chicken or veg stock
couple of bay leaves
cracked black pepper

couple of rashers of bacon
some blue cheese
some bread

take the pumpkin, sweet potato, carrots, pepper and garlic and coat in some olive oil. roast in the oven for about 40-50 minutes until cooked. In the meantime saute the onion and chilli in a pan until soft. take the roasted veg and add into the pan, cover with the stock and add in the bay leaves. simmer for 20 minutes or so. remove the bay leaves an then blend in food processor or hand blender under lovely and glossy and thick. i served this with some grilled bacon bits and bread and cheese on the side. H crumbled blue cheese into his soup and that tasted pretty amazing. nothing better then a steaming bowl of homemade soup after a walk in the cold and rain. i love autumn
