2. Cut the pumpkin and squash and boil in a separate pot until soft. Then puree it and set it to the side. Be sure to keep the left over water from the pumpkin on the side for later use. Cut the other vegetables medium to large pieces and set to the side
3. Once your meat is soft:
  • Add carrots, celery, turnip and cook for another 5-10 minutes
  • Add 2 cups of that pumpkin broth to cook the vegetable.
4. Then you want to add the potatoes, pasta and the pumpkin puree. allow 10-15 minutes for pasta cook through.
5. The pasta will thicken the soup. If you prefer more broth you can add  the pumpkin broth that you have set aside or tweak it with chicken broth which will enhance the flavor. 
6. Season your soup with Maggi (half a cube), a teaspoon of Chicken Flavor Noodle Soup Mix( desired seasoning),a pinch of salt as needed. Serve this wonderful soup with our special slaw made with just 3 ingredients. Subscribe for the recipe.
That was the base of our pumpkin soup. Not difficult at all.This soup is a traditional delicacy in the Haitian community and depending on the area in Haiti the recipe will change: more produce may be added. For instance plantains or cabbage may be added and so on. Get cooking IslandTwisters.
