Squashy Bottom Soup Bowls: Autumn Warmers.
Squashy bottom soup bowls anyone, how tasty!!
Hello friends. This easy-to-make squash soup doesn’t even require any bowls – just eat it straight out of the shell, saving on the washing up and adding to the entertainment.
It’s a great child-pleaser for Hallowe’en and has endless variations with different garnishes – some fried shiitake or chestnut mushrooms would up the earthy autumnal feel.
How To Make Squashy Bottom Soup Bowls:
You Will Need:
4 small squash (onion squash is ideal)
300g Ogleshield cheese (or a good melting cheese such as Gruyère or Cheddar), grated
100g Parmesan (or vegetarian equivalent), grated
about 40g butter
few gratings of nutmeg
4 small thyme sprigs
800ml double cream
salt and black pepper
How To Make:
1.) Heat the oven to 190°C/Gas 5.
2.) Slice the tops off the squash and scoop out the seeds and pulp, then place the squash bowls, cut-side up on a baking tray (reserve the lids).
3.) Divide the cheeses and butter between the squash and add a grating of nutmeg and a small sprig of thyme to each, then pour in the cream to two thirds of the way up each squash bowl.
4.) Season with generous amounts of black pepper and a cautious amount of salt – bear in mind the saltiness of the cheeses.
5.) Put the lids on, place on a baking tray and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size of your squash, until tender.
6.) Eat by scraping the soft flesh into the hot cream.
Serve this in a large single squash, such as a crown prince.
Treat it like a large fondue pot, dipping in toast soldiers or leftover roast potatoes.
You will need to up the cooking time – this will take at least 1 hour, and it’s worth reducing the oven temperature to 180°C/Gas 4 and/or wrapping the squash loosely with foil so the outside doesn’t brown too much before it cooks through.
The flesh should give to the tip of a knife.
