Pumpkin Sage Soup. A vibrant bowl of Autumnal colour and flavour. Make the most of pumpkin season with this herby bowl of sunshine!
Well, we’re nearly at the end of November, which means it’s time to let go of pumpkins and accept that it’s over for another year. Let’s just have one last recipe shall we?
I’ve made this pumpkin sage soup three or four times this season, so I know it’s a good one. Oh and those bread rolls in the background are these pumpkin bread rolls. They are so soft and fluffy and go perfectly with the soup.
Top it off with lots of fresh parsley, some pumpkin seeds for good measure and a nice swirl of coconut cream.
