A friend of mine was on a trip to Aruba and she ate at Boonoonoonoos and she had the best ever Pumpkin Soup! The restaurant was kind enough to share the recipe. I have not tried this yet but now is the time.
BOONOONOONOOS CARIBBEAN BISTRO,ARUBA
Salt & Pepper
Cut the pumpkin and take out the seeds. Peel the pumpkin and cut it into cubes. Boil the cubes until they are soft. Separate the boiling water and boiled pumpkin, and blend the pumpkin-meat. Put the blended pumpkin in a pan and add heavy cream, black pepper and salt (to taste). Finish the blended pumpkin with boiled water to get a creamy soup. Top with shredded Gouda cheese and add the Caribbean touch by adding sugar to taste.
To really show off this dish, empty the inside of a pumpkin and pour the soup into the shell. This makes a beautiful dinner center piece.
