Pumpkin and vegetable cream (soup)

The weather was perfect for soup so we made this great cream. The amounts are for what we used and not what you should use so just add as much/little of each vegetable and omit whatever you would prefer not to include.

Pumpkin (about 1Kg)
Onion (1 medium)
Potatoes (l large)
Garlic (2 heads)
Any other vegetable you want to add (we added brocoli)
Salt and pepper
Water or stock
Milk (optional)
Seasoning of your choice

1. Cut all the veggies (except the garlic which you add whole and peel once cooked) so they cook faster and place them on a baking tray. Spray with a little oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook until tender and they are a bit golden*.
2. Put the cooked veggies in a large pot and cover with water or stock. Let boil for a little while and then with a stick mixer, puree the vegetables and add some milk and the seasoning.
3. Taste and adjust salt. Done.

*We baked the broccoli as well which wasn't a good idea since it cooked way faster than the rest and became a little burnt.

We served with a dollop of greek yoghurt.
