Recipe: Spiced roasted pumpkin and zucchini soup

Pumpkin is one of my favourite ingredients for soup because it’s versatile, cheap and easy to work with. This spiced roasted pumpkin and zucchini soup is a perfect example of a simple and economical dinner you can make on a weeknight.

This soup is naturally gluten-free and can be made vegan if you use dairy-free yoghurt and vegetable stock.

Add a source of protein (e.g. boiled eggs, lentils or chickpeas) to round off the meal.
