Roasted Butternut Pumpkin Soup


In Australia, butternut pumpkin soup refers to a pureed soup that includes butternut squash. The inclusion of the squash results in a sweet-tasting soup. You can make your own butternut pumpkin soup at home using simple ingredients, such as canned butternut squash puree. You also can use any fresh carrots, onions or celery that you have grown in your garden. With the addition of the vegetables your soup will be even more hearty and filling.

Step 3

Heat over medium heat until the ingredients are soft. Add salt and pepper to taste and stir the mixture.

Step 4
