Well the wildlife loves sweet potatoes:

carrots and sweet potatoes dropped from helicopters for starving wildlife

Senoufou, pumpkin soup is easy. Fry some onions in oil (I use olive oil), add some cubed pumpkin or butternut pumpkin aka squash. Cook the pumpkin for about 10 minutes to bring out the flavour. Add some vegetable or chicken stock to cover the pumpkin and onions and also top up the saucepan with boiling water. Simmer until the pumpkin is tender. Blend it all up. Season to taste.

If you want to jazz it up you can add spices or curry powder before adding the pumpkin pieces but I just love it plain. With a dollop of milk or cream in the bowl and a couple of pieces of toasted bread or sourdough. Easy peasy.

If I roast veges I do the whole lot of the pumpkin and use it to make soup or freeze it for later.
