Halloween Spooky Soup Bowl
Have you yet to try our traditional (and delicious!) sourdough – and there’s no better way to warm up now the nights are beginning to draw in than with a warming Halloween Pumpkin soup.
How to make a Halloween Sourdough Soup Bowl
Pick up one of our lovely round sourdough breads, remove the top and scoop out the middle so you can fit a bowl of steaming soup in there.
Top tip: Don’t throw away the filling of your bread! Add 1 medium onion and 1 garlic clove with the bread into a food processer until it turns to a coarse crumb. Melt 50g of butter in a pan and add the breadcrumb mix, 2 handfuls of fresh sage and a little seasoning. Lightly brown, remove from the heat and mould into stuffing balls – perfect to accompany a Sunday roast.
25ml olive oil
2 handfuls fresh sage
Flesh from one large pumpkin
700ml vegetable/chicken stock
Finely dice the onions. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large saucepan and gently fry off the onions to make until soft but not browned. Add your pumpkin flesh and allow to cook for 5-10 mins until it softens and turns a light golden colour.
Pour the stock into a pan, seasoning with salt and pepper. Add the pumpkin and onion. Bring this to the boil; then simmer for 10 mins until the pumpkin is very soft. Finely chop the sage and add to the soup in the last 2 mins of cooking.
Remove from heat and add the cream. Use a blender to turn the soup silky and smooth and serve inside a bowl placed in your spooky soup bowl.
