Warming red capsicum and pumpkin soup

I love winter soups, it is so easy to pack lots of goodness into one easy meal.

Soups have been a life saver for me this pregnancy as I have struggled with aversions to certain foods (including a huge aversion to capsicum) and if I hide them in a soup I can handle it. Yay a win for me!!
