For my starter menu item in this months Theme of the Month Menu Hogwarts Tea Party, I decided on Hufflepuff Chilled Mango Soup. I decided a healthy chilled soup would be the perfect way to start the tea. Mangoes have a beautiful yellow color and the flavor is a bit unexpected. This is a quick recipe that needs to be done ahead of time as it’s important to serve it chilled.
For the Hogwarts Tea Party, I decided to make one dish inspired by each house. This recipe is inspired by Hufflepuff. The traits Hufflepuff students are known for include valuing hard work, patience, loyalty, and fair play. There are famous wizards and witches from each house, but the one we know best right now from Hufflepuff is Newt Scamander from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Newt truly does belong in Hufflepuff and is a very interesting character, I would love for the author, J.K. Rowling, to dive deeper into his story.
The founder of the house, Helga Hufflepuff, feels like the most relaxed and accepting founder of the four. She will teach anyone and had no prejudice against those that were born from “muggles” or non magic families. The colors of the Hufflepuff house are yellow and black. The house mascot is a badger. Anyone who is sorted into Hufflepuff should be proud.
You can learn a lot about the Hufflepuff house at Pottermore.
Hufflepuff Chilled Mango Soup Recipe
To make the soup, combine the mangoes, mango juice, milk and honey in a blender. When smooth, add a pinch of salt and spice and blend until completely incorporated. Chill for at least an hour, but overnight works well and gives you the chance to make this recipe the day ahead leaving plenty of time for all the other recipes the day of the tea party.
- 4 cups frozen mangoes
