Great soup - the DM loved it. I used a stick blender and just blended in the pot and then added the cinnamon and honey. I used just over a kilo of butternut pumpkin and about 600 grams of sweet potato and 2 litres of vegetable stock along with 1 very large red onion and 1 medium brown onion, keeping everything else the same. Thank you Trudy Hobbs, made for Bargain Basement.
