Try our scary soup for a delicious Halloween meal, but beware! Check that no rats or spiders have fallen in the bubbling broth before eating... You've been warned!

What you'll need:

1 tbsp olive oil

onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, crushed

650g frozen petits pois

750ml vegetable stock

75g diced chorizo

1 tbsp butter, optional

To serve:

1 small pumpkin, hollowed out and de-seeded


Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and gently cook over a medium heat for 5-6 mins until softened but not coloured. Add the garlic and cook for a further min. Stir in three-quarters of the petit pois, then pour in the stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10-12 mins. Meanwhile, fry your chorizo until crisp

Allow to cool for a few mins, then carefully transfer to a food processor and whizz until smooth. You might need to do this in two batches, depending on the size of your processor.

Return the soup to the pan and add the remaining petit pois. Bring to the boil and simmer for 2 mins or until the whole peas are tender. Season to taste, then stir in the butter, if using. Scatter the chorizo pieces over the bowls/mugs/pumpkin bowl.

To serve:

Carve out a small pumpkin ensuring there are no seeds left/flesh inside and serve your soup in the pumpkin to make it extra ghoulish!
