I love soups! When I was a child, it was the only way to make me eat vegetables. The winter is coming… Yes it is… At least in Europe… and I really need some vitamins right now.
But soups look always so classic and I wanted to prepare something special this week-end. The parents of my boyfriend were coming for dinner and we had something really important to celebrate. I gave it a though but this bicolor soup is very original and I was right to serve it as everybody loved it.
Pour the pumpkin soup first into your plates and then the radish tops’ soup. Add some pepper, Espelette pepper and a bit of cream on top!
