Pumpkin Soup Recipe


Halloween provides the perfect opportunity to be creative in the kitchen. Whether it's as simple as saving the seeds from pumpkin carvings to make a tasty yet healthy snack or a drink fit for any witch or monster, Halloween is a sweet and fun time in the kitchen.

With many holiday celebrations on the horizon, like Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas, Boxing Day and New Years Eve, now is the time to hire your own personal chef. With Galor taking care of the food, you’ll be able to focus on your guests and family while enjoying the delicious treats.

Halloween parties offer a great opportunity to have some fun in the kitchen. From making creepy cupcakes and scary cookies to a spooky soup, the possibilities are endless...

Ingredients

•4 tbsp olive oil

•2 onions finely chopped

•1kg pumpkins or squash, peeled, deseeded and chopped into chunks

•700ml vegetable stock or chicken stock

•142ml tub of double cream


Method

•Heat half the olive oil in a large saucepan, then gently cook the onions for 5 minutes until soft but not coloured. Add the pumpkin or squash to the pan, then carry on cooking for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until it starts to soften and turn golden.



•Next...Pour the stock into the pan, then season with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 minutes until the squash is very soft. Pour the cream into the pan, bring back to the boil, then purée with a hand blender. For an extra-velvety consistency you can push the soup through a fine sieve into another pan.



•Finish with a Halloween Design, your soup is cooked and in a bowl. It's smooth and beautiful. Use thinned sour cream with a little milk inside and make a spiral design, take a little skewer and with the tip pull it through. There's your spider web soup. Enjoy!
