#SundaySupper: Spanish Garlic Soup

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back super around the family table in every home.  This week Susan at The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen is hosting and the theme is dishes that keep you warm.

I have a wonderful book called The Soup Bible.  When sunday supper decided on this theme I went straight for that book.  There is a section called winter warming soup!  Perfect!  I want to try all of them, but this one really stuck out to me.  It has a rather interesting process.  It is very simple.  However, it gets unique at the end.  You ladle the soup into single serving bowls and then crack an egg into it and put bread on top of that and bake it for a few minutes to poach the egg.  It’s brilliant and makes for a full meal.

Roasted Pumpkin and Coconut Soup

I love soup!!!  And I have never made anything with real pumpkin.  Therefore, last time I went to the farmer’s market I decided to buy one.  For some reason I was really nervous about cooking with a real pumpkin, but it was so easy!  Just like squash, except bigger.  I don’t know what else I am going to make with pumpkin.  But, I definitely am going to use it more this fall!
