Healthy Eating - Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Soup with Mint

Trying to get more vegetables into my family means trying to hide them in different ways.

Butternut pumpkin has been accepted roasted, so I decided to try a sweet soup with it.

I cooked sweet potato and butternut pumpkin in as little water as possible until soft. Then I blended one cup of soy milk with a handful of fresh mint, then added the pumpkin and potato and blended until smooth.

I grated some fresh nutmeg on top before serving.

It was DELICIOUS!!! However, it wasn't well received by everyone. I have a feeling that "soup" and "sweet" threw them and they couldn't get past the thought that soup should have salt in it!

So I ate two bowl fulls and they had a sandwich.
