Pumpkin, Apple and Sage Soup
Soup is such an inexpensive meal and rarely does it end in disaster. Win win. This pumpkin, apple and sage soup is a great one to use up that piece of pumpkin sitting in the fridge and the apples left over in the fruit bowl. Combine them with a handful of ingredients and you have a delicious meal. The flavours work so well together we are sure this will become a new favourite.
