Roasted Pumpkin Soup for a Chilly Autumn Day

Nothing beats a bowl of hot soup on a chilly autumn day, and what better way than to fix it FRESH?

Homemade, For Goodness Sake!

I recently had “Autumn Soup” at a local restaurant. It boasts of a rich blend of butternut squash and pumpkin with honey, apple juice, cinnamon and a hint of curry. It was creamy, rich, sweet, and delicious.

Experiment or Testing?

I decided to try my own version at home with some of my freshly pureed pumpkin. I tend to experiment, sometimes to my own hurt. So I also switched some other ingredients (like sugar for honey) and added more pumpkin spices. My "sprinkle" of curry was a bit overzealous and too pungent, so I added garlic salt. Big mistake. The soup now lacked the sweetness. So much for my experiments.
