We had family over for Halloween this year and I made this soup as a starter. I roasted two fresh sugar pumpkins and a couple sweet potatoes along with some spices, which filled the house with such a comfortable aroma. This Fall we visited Napa for our anniversary and picked up some quality white truffle oil, it was the perfect topper for the soup.
