Hi there, Halloween is coming! I wanna show you few low cost options for this Halloween, using seasonal products some as chestnuts, pumpkin, mushrooms, etc
Today I've done an easy, cheap, and great butternut squash soup. You can use pumpkin if you want but in my opinion butternut squash is tastier. Here comes the recipe:
1 garlic clove
1 butternut squash
1 liter of chicken stock
Toasted Pumpkin seeds
Put a bit of olive oil in a pot and place in the chopped shallots and the garlic, till golden. Add then the butternut chopped in cubes and add a bit of salt and pepper and a bit of chopped thyme. After a few minutes add the chicken stock till cover and leave slow boil for around 15 minutes. By the time, cut a bit of sliced bread in cubes and place them in a tray with extra virgin olive oil, touch of salt and pepper, and bake in the oven till golden.
Once the soup is cooked, pass it in a hand blender till smooth. Rectify of salt and pepper, and plate into a soup plate or bowl.
Decorate with 4-5 croutons, some pumpkin seeds, touch of pumpkin oil, and use some baby coriander leaves to decorate.
