Spiced Squash Soup – Fabulous Family Food 1



There is something deliciously decadent about this spiced squash soup. I think that it is all about the richness of flavours that you get when you roast the pumpkin or squash before adding it to your soup. It is a wonderful winter soup and always goes down really well with family and friends.

I love autumn, it signifies homemade soup season for me and spiced squash soup works with any type of pumpkin or squash. I like to mix it up and have even used the small mixed ones from Lidl and Aldi, the secret is to roast the squash in their skin (as who has the energy to peel them) and then scoop out the flesh when cooled.

This is a brilliant soup for keeping your immune system boosted as it is full of goodness and vitamins. Squash is very high in Vitamins A and C and ginger and garlic are great anti-oxidants with anti-inflammatory properties so perfect for this cold and flu season.
