Delicious Root Vegetable Soup Recipe

As autumn draws in, those cold, dark, rainy evenings call for a super comforting meal like this soup, but it would be perfect at lunchtime after a long autumnal walk too.

Use any squash in place of the pumpkin, just go for whatever looks best at the farmers' market.

Serve with good crusty bread and lots of love.
