WITCH’S BREW STEW RECIPE
So yes, we had lots of fun witch-themed Halloween foods, but the main dish was this delicious Witch’s Brew Stew. Witch, I mean which if I’m totally honest, was actually a Halloween soup. Because fall soups are so delicious.
This Wild Rice and Chicken Soup freezes really well, so make it before your party and reheat it when you are ready to serve it. Or throw it in the slow cooker the day of the party to thaw until you are ready to eat.
HOW TO SERVE THE WITCH’S BREW STEW
For extra festiveness, serve this soup out a cauldron!
As a warning, be sure your cauldron is food safe and solid like this inexpensive cauldron from Amazon. I learned this the hard way when as I was transferring the soup into the cauldron, I noticed there was a small hole at the bottom. Luckily, setting the cauldron on a plate solved the problem, but it could have been worse!
Not all cauldrons are created equal. Be sure you get a food-safe cauldron.
