Pumpkin Sweet Potato Carrot Soup

The Eid Holiday started from today, everyone is at home and I need to whip up a fast meal to feed the hungry tummy! Google the Internet for a while and a recipe which used lime zest in pumpkin soup attracted my attention. I want to know what it tastes like to have lime zest in pumpkin soup! The original recipe is using white wine in the soup but I omitted it because of Gabriel. I added about 100g potatoes and 1 tbsp turmeric powder into the soup to add that extra flavour. Love this thick soup to go with toasted bread, yes the lime zest in the soup really really taste good!! 

Happy Eid Mubarak!
