I made an edible meal!! Three Squash and Thyme soup :)

Yup, I made soup and bread which my partner deemed acceptable if not good.

Here is the recipe:
Small butternut squash
Harlequin squash
Culinary pumpkin
A few potatoes
Red onion
2 garlic gloves
Fresh thyme
Black pepper
Pinch Cayenne pepper
Pinch Cumin
Tablespoon olive oil
Pumpkin seed oil
Pumpkin seeds
Vegetable stock
2 bay leaves

How to make it delicious-
Chop up squashes and potato into small cubes. Chop onion, crush garlic cloves and chop a handful of fresh thyme.
Heat olive oil in a pan, add garlic, onion and thyme, fry on low heat until onion is soft and starts to brown.
Make 1 pint vegetable stock, add chopped veg, fried things, bay leaves and stock to a pan and top up with hot water and boil for 25 mins.

REMOVE THE BAY LEAVES- then blend. Add spices and salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with a garnish of pumpkin oil, pumpkin seeds and a few thyme sprigs.


Optional: carve the pumpkins and post pictures on facebook. Get told by your partner that you are a loser.
