What a smooth, warming, pumpkin-coloured soup! Very easy to make as well; nice served with homemade bread. I used 1 1/2 Tbsp oil plus a little water near the end of the sauteeing to help the veggies steam up nicely. Also extra garlic!! The apple adds a lovely sweet dimension. Great recipe, Harriet, keep 'em coming!
