It's no secret that I love soup during Winter time. Who doesn't? However, I'm really not a fan of smooth, pureed soups. Don't ask my why as I have no idea why that is.
Maybe I just don't find them hearty enough.
Or maybe it is the memory of wrapping up a friend's little sister in about 10 blankets like a baby many, many years ago, and feeding her soup until she threw up everywhere and we ran screaming from the house....?
Roasted Pumpkin and Almond Soup
I loved this soup as the almonds added a beautiful mellowness which worked so well with the sweetness of the pumpkin.
A perfect mid-week Winter meal, but just as good served in little vintage cups for friends at a lazy Sunday afternoon tea.
