ROASTED GARLIC,PUMPKIN SOUP


Pumpkin rich in many Vitamins and Minerals a

wealthy source of antioxidants, can be

consumed in many way .

I always love to make anything from scratch,

and don’t prefer the use of canned food in any

form.

Sweets,pies,cakes,and many more to add l,can

be made with this lovely yellow vegetable.

I have posted many recipes with pumpkin,and

a lovely fresh drink with pineapple.

This soup is an addition to it .

Roasted the garlic and pumpkin ,in the oven

with a drizzle of olive oil and combined with

only leeks ,it was a lovely creamy soup for

dinner!Adding extra cream to serve is your

option.
