The perfect soup for Winter. Creamy, warming, sweet, and spicy! Goes great with vegan cream cheese on toast too

This soup is great for a light lunch, starter, or side. If you're looking for something a bit more filling, toast a slice of sourdough and smother it in vegan cream cheese. You won't regret it.
