Melissa’s Soup Toppings you’ll love

Image
  As a self-confessed soup lover, I am always looking for ways to add extra flavour, crunch and excitement to my soup. So here are 5 ways you can spruce up yours: 1. Halloumi Croutons:   not technically “croutons” as there’s no bread involved but these are delicious cubes of crispy fried halloumi. Simply chop, fry in a little butter or oil & cook to your desired crispiness.  Get the recipe. 2.

Hello, Melissa here! Every year after Halloween around 12.8 million pumpkins go to waste so let’s embrace the delicious veg & find ways to keep enjoying them all season long (Pumpkins are in season October-February/March). So if you’ve found yourself with lots of squash & pumpkins and aren’t sure what to do with them then here are a few of my favourite Autumnal recipes for loving your leftovers and making your meals and money go further. Feel free to swap all the squash in these recipes for pumpkin! And if you’re feeling even more inspired to use your Pumpkins then why not try grating them into hearty Lasagnes & delicious Gratins. For seasonal breakfasts, try pumpkin porridge or grate it and simmer with apples and cinnamon for a lovely porridge topping or with yoghurt. Roast it and scoop out the tender flesh when it cools slightly before turning into pumpkin puree which you can then freeze or make pumpkin pies or tarts- delicious! And don’t forget about the seeds- wash &
