Here are the 6 best pumpkin soups in Brooklyn
With Halloween behind us and Thanksgiving just around the corner, pumpkin season is in full swing. Styling stoops, infiltrating coffee shops, and stuffing pies and sweets alike, the orange veggie is the ideal addition to any fall table.
The pumpkin is the symbol of harvest time and is most often classified in the dessert family.
But, the early colonists’ version of pumpkin “pie” did not resemble the pastry crusted temptation we have come to know at all, but more that of a soup crafted by pureeing the insides of the pumpkin and serving it inside its own casing. (A fully compostable meal, by the way.)
Gourd bisques are also integral parts of South African and Caribbean cuisines and were a staple dish for prisoners of war in North Vietnamese prison camps during the Vietnam War. Point blank, pumpkin soup has been around for some time, and it isn’t going anywhere soon.
