Pumpkin soup

Ok basic pumpkin and sweet potato soup-
Dash of olive oil
Diced onion
Freshly grated ginger (around an inch or so)
A few cloves of garlic, crushed
Chicken stock or veggie stock (water's fine if you prefer, just adjust seasoning accordingly)
1 or 2 sweet potatoes peeled and cut into evenish sized chunks
1/2 to 1 medium sized pumpkin (i used 1/3 each of butternut, jap and some other variety) cut into chunks
Garam masala, all spice, sea salt, cayenne pepper and black pepper to taste

Saute onion in olive oil over low/medium heat until soft and transparent, add garlic and ginger, stir
Add pumpkin and sweet potato, stir
Add stock/water, stir and reduce heat
Bring to very slow simmer and stir occasionally until pumpkin etc is soft
Allow to cool and then blend until smooth
Place back in pot to heat and add spices, salt and pepper to taste
Serve hot with a bit of crumbled bacon on top :D

Tip; I buy cut pumpkin because i can see the colour, which should be rich and deep
