Roasted Butternut Squash, Parsnip and Sweet Potato Soup

Roasted butternut squash and sweet potato soup

Brought to you from the chefs at Bradley Fold Garden centre, we have a delicious parsnip, butternut squash and sweet potato soup.

One good thing about the cooler autumn days is being able to enjoy a thick seasonal vegetable soup.   This recipe is the perfect for frosty evenings, nourishing, flavoursome and so easy to make.   If there is any leftover soup it can be frozen to enjoy again at a later date.
