Glorious! New England Butternut Squash Soup and Cheddar Chilli and Pumpkin Seed Soda Bread

I am rather excited to announce that over the next 6 months I will be a Glorious Soup Ambassador. What does this mean? It means I get to try out a number of their rather delicious fresh soups, report back to my readers what they taste like and come up with some recipes suggestions too. This month I tried out the autumnal New England Butternut Squash Soup from the SkinnyLisious range. It was silky smooth and the cumin added made it have a lovely warmth. It has been some time since I visited New England. We visited Stowe in Vermont and it really was exactly how you would imagine Christmas in a US movie. Every house had twinkling fairy lights and fresh white snow. The Butternut Squash soup would have been a lovely warming lunch to come back to whilst we were skiing out there. 
Glorious! are currently running an exciting competition where you could win a trip for 2 to Mumbai by sharing your travel memories sparked by your favourite soup in the range. To find out more head over to the Foodies 100 website.

I don't know about you, but I love some nice fresh bread to dip in my soup and decided to make a simple and quick soda bread to accompany the Glorious Butternut Squash soup.

This recipe serves 2 people and it matched nicely with the Glorious New England Butternut Squash soup.

250g plain flour
2tsp baking powder
5g salt
50g grated cheddar
150ml milk or buttermilk
1 red chilli deseeded and chopped finely
A handful of pumpkin seeds
Mix the flour, salt, baking powder and milk together to make a dough. Add the chilli and most of the cheddar. (Keep a little back for the top of the bread.) Make into a ball and flatten. Place on some greased proof paper and add the remaining cheese and pumpkin seeds on top. Score the bread and then bake at 180C for around 25 minutes.

Serve with a little butter and dip into the Glorious New England Butternut Squash Soup.

Have you tried the Glorious range yet? What is your favourite flavour?
