+ food - halloween soup

Halloween Soup (serves six)

1 kg fresh pumpkin, peeled, seeded and
cut into small pieces
8 cloves garlic, peeled
1 large carrot, peeled and cut into small
1 fresh white baguette: half plain bread
chunks with crust removed, half sliced into discs
250 g Gruyère, thinly sliced
A few sprigs of parsley, chopped
Salt and ground black pepper

Bring 900 ml of water to the boil.
Add chopped pumpkin and carrot, one tablespoon
of salt and the peeled garlic; simmer for 30 minutes or until ingredients are
Fold in crustless bread chunks and simmer
for four minutes.
Remove from heat, liquidize in a blender
or pass through a sieve and pour into large round bowls.
Add chopped parsley and season with salt
and pepper.
Toast baguette discs, drizzle with olive
oil and cover with slices of Gruyère.
Melt under grill for a few seconds; float
three on each portion of soup.
Serve immediately.

It’ll keep you warmer than any trick or treating expedition. And that garlic should keep the vampires at bay.
