COOKS&CO, the must-have fine food range for the discerning home cook, has the perfect solution for getting the most out of your Halloween pumpkin this year.
To complement the spirit of the spooky October 31st festival, COOKS&CO has created a 20-minute Pumpkin Soup recipe that is sure to warm the cockles of any trick or treater once the pumpkin has been used to carve out a scary pumpkin.
Using the ‘discarded’ flesh of the pumpkin and roasting it in COOKS&CO’s wonderfully versatile and neutral tasting grapeseed oil – which means the pumpkin remains the star – this easy to follow recipe combines simple ingredients for a tasty Halloween treat that mum or dad can make with the kids.
It’s also perfect for dinner parties as a winter warming starter, or as an autumnal lunchtime treat.
Ikg pumpkin chopped into large roasting chunks
1 sliced onion
4 cloves of garlic
1 sprig of rosemary
50ml COOKS&CO grapeseed oil
1 tsp sea salt
Cracked black pepper
6 cups of chicken or vegetable stock
1. Heat oven to 180°C. Place pumpkin, onion, garlic and rosemary in a baking tray.
2. Brush pumpkin with the COOKS&CO grapeseed oil. Sprinkle with salt and plenty of cracked black pepper. Bake for 1 hour or until softly roasted.
3. Pour a cup of stock into the pan. Lightly blend in batches with the rest of the stock, pouring into a saucepan.
4. Bring to the boil and then simmer for up to 20 minutes.
5. Serve with crusty bread.
COOKS&CO oils are available from Ocado and fine food and specialist retailers nationwide.
