Roasted Pumpkin Tomato Soup

Sweet & Sour, Tangy Roasted Pumpkin Tomato Soup


 Pumpkin is a vegetable which my family members never like to see and eat. But I never want to keep away my family members from its health benefits. So I always use it to thicken my curries. I was planning to make pumpkin soup since long but I knew my son will immediately recognize its flavor so was hesitating to make it. Last week I came across this roasted pumpkin  with tomato soup and I tried it on the same day...Amazingly it did a wonder in my house. Its barbequed and roasted flavored along with tangy tomato gave a unique flavor to soup and everyone enjoyed the soup. It is healthy, tasty and filling and am sure you and your loved one will ask more n more...Try this recipe to make Roasted Pumpkin Tomato soup.
