Have you ever wondered what to do with the flesh of your carved Halloween Pumpkin? After all the hard work scooping out the flesh and cutting the eyes and mouth no doubt you’ll want to settle for something easy and tasty.
Our easy pumpkin soup might just do the trick and provide the kids with a warm supper after an evening of trick or treat and gorging on sweets.
To make pumpkin soup for 4 to 6 people you need:
- 2 pounds (1 kg) of pumpkin chopped in large cubes
- 1 apple peeled and chopped
- 2 large potatoes chopped in large cubes
- 3 pints (1.5 litres) of stock
- 1 small pot of cream (optional)
- 2 tsp of olive oil
- Chopped parsley
- Salt and black pepper
Fry the pumpkin, apple and potatoes in oil for a few minutes. Add the stock and bring to boil for 30 minutes. Blend the soup until smooth. Blend in the cream and add the parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
This easy pumpkin soup will be delicious served with grated cheese and crusty bread. Adults might enjoy it with a glass of light red wine. It’s just the perfect warming autumn dish – in fact it would be a shame to eat it only on Halloween night!
