This pumpkin and fennel soup is really special. It is different yet creamy and flavorful. A combination of pumpkin and fennel that blends perfectly with spicy flavour of fresh ginger and with the particular aftertaste of smoked paprika. These amazing seasonal vegetables have been kindly provided to me Bioexpress.
