Home Made Garlic Bread With Pumpkin Soup

Garlic bread is a good accompaniment for all types of creamy soup and chowder. Yesterday we were not in mood to have rice stuff, so I just bake some garlic bread and cook some pumpkin soup for our dinner. This is the first time I make these two stuffs, and I decided to make from scratch. The garlic bread was great. It's crunchy and fragrant. However, the pumpkin soup turned out not so thick, due to too much fresh milk added. I should have cut down the milk portion into half.

See my nicely baked garlic bread? :)

Garlic Bread
Serves 2


3/4 French loaf
3 tbsp salted butter
5 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil


1. Slice the French loaf to 2.5cm each.

2. Spread a layer of salted butter to each loaf slice.

3. Heat extra virgin olive oil in a pan, and lightly saute the chopped garlic. Off the fire.

4. Preheat the oven at 180C for 5 minutes.

5. Spread the garlic to each slice of loaf and arrange them on baking pan.

6. Bake the garlic bread for 8 minutes under 150 and finally 5 minutes under 180.

7. Serve hot with soup of your favorite.

aren't you supposed to use cream instead of milk??

Selba, it's fragrant and crispy. Not bad for the first try. :)

New kid, yes I use cream for thickening, but I double up the fresh milk portion accidentally, hehe......

Only satisfying my eyes? How about some for my stomach too? Yours look so delicious! If you want a thicker pumpkin soup, you can reduce the water and add fresh cream instead of milk.

Food for Tots, actually I didn't add water at all, I used fresh milk as the soup base, and thickening by cream. Just that the milk portion is over limit, that's why the soup turned out not so creamy.
