Winter is reaching it’s full swing. We have our heaters on, the woolly socks are out, and hot mugs of hot chocolate or tea are in order almost every night. Oh, and soups. Winter is the time to up the soup game and embrace winter soup for all it’s gloriousness. This winter soup is heartwarming, easy to make, and comforting.
I absolutely love having this soup with some toasted rye sourdough topped with some smashed avocado, or if you’re not vegan you could even make a grilled cheese toastie to go with it – basically anything involving bred. Not much beats dipping crunchy, warm bread into a bowl of hot soup.
I know having beetroot in soup is not all that common, but it lends an earthy flavour and is balanced with the sweetness from the pumpkin and the warmth from the cinnamon, ginger and cumin. I just love the colour of this soup, and it’s one of those where leftovers taste even better, as the flavours have had time to develop. Simply reheat with a splash of water and ta-dá! home-made soup for the week.
