Foods Matter's Cressida has a three-year-old little boy, so she is very keen on Hallowe'en! Here is her pumpkin soup – and she has also come up with a delicous recipe for pumpkin pie!
Pumpkins. They're huge, they're heavy and sometimes it is difficult to know what to do with them. Here is a simple recipe for pumpkin soup that will warm the triumphant returning trick or treaters on the coldest and spookiest night of the year.
The size of your pumpkin, and how much flesh you are able to carve (scoop is too gentle a word for this task) out before your children die of exasperation and seize the pumpkin to sculpt their scary faces, will determine how much soup you make.
Since pumpkins are in season and therefore cheap at this time of year you may just want to buy yourself a whole pumpkin and work uninterrupted - all fine and good as the soup is freezable, plus you can always add in any extra flesh. Cutting the rind off is infinitely easier than risking bleeding knuckles by scraping out the flesh. Save as many of the seeds as possible for the garnish, or as a delicious hot snack.
