Baby, it’s cold outside.

Winter in Australia has well and truly arrived.

Warm up with a bowl of my comforting Spiced Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup!

This soup truly is delicious and nutritious.

It is one of the first recipes I ever learnt to make when I was younger – and all these years later, is still a favourite!

I love to make a big batch and store the leftovers in the freezer. You can certainly put your own twist on it also – fresh herbs and baby spinach are a great addition just before serving.

Both sweet potato and pumpkin are full of health benefits. They contain many vitamins and minerals and are high in antioxidants.  

Aside from being nutritious, this recipe is suitable for people with different dietary requirements. Serve with crusty bread or my Mixed Seed Crackers for a delicious meal!

Like a lot of my recipes, I strongly encourage you to make this soup your own.  The basic recipe is vegan and gluten-free and delicious as it is. However, if you do not have specific dietary restrictions you can tailor it to your own requirement. If you would like a more creamy soup, drizzle some cream on top or dollop on some Greek yoghurt just before serving.

  4. Winter in the prairies of Canada can get kind of chilly, -50C some days. A big mug of hot soup with your fingers wrapped around the mug slowly blowing the steam off the top as you slowly sip away goes along way to warming up on those days.

  5. This foods looks so mouthwatering, I think it will be my kids new favorite, thankyou for sharing this recipe.

  6. The only thing I love more than a warm soup on a cool night is the taste of sweet potatoes! This sounds like the perfect comfort food.
