I made this soup this afternoon. I used a butternut pumpkin and I added 1 carrot, some garlic and a sweet potato. I blended it with a stick blender. I didn’t add cream ( as I didn’t have any in the fridge) It was a bit on the smoky side for me, I think because of the bacon, but it might be better if I add some cream. 🙂 Thank you for the recipe.
