ABOUT Spicy Oven Roasted Pumpkin And Carrot Soup RECIPE

Rustic and easy. There are certain food combinations that simply work extremely well together. One of them are pumpkin and carrots. Both have a sweet flavour and the crunchiness of the carrot is a wonderful contrast to the juicy softness of the pumpkin. Add a bit of green chilli and adequate seasoning, you've got an explosive flavour. Roasting both the pumpkin and carrots is like a beautiful love affair. The sweet harmony of flavours that are intertwined with each other is incredible.
