Heritage of Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkin soup is a staple in many cultures, each culture placing their own spin on recipes to serve a delicious soup with Soul. From the spicy variant springing out of Africa, to the creamier version coming out of the streets of London or the sweeter style across the Pacific in America. But did you know it is the celebratory food of a small Caribbean Island Haiti.  Traditionally called Soup Joumou and consumed on New Year’s Day. This soup is a historical tribute to Haitian Independence Day in 1804 where the newly freed slaves consumed pumpkin soup, a meal forbidden to them by their French slave masters. It is said you cannot make soup Joumou without love, patience, and a smile on your face. Authentic soup Joumou is a hearty and rich dish that is generally not as thick and not pureed like the modern pumpkin soup. It is filled with vegetables with a combination of goat, beef, chicken and pork. The soup is generally finished off with pasta or noodles and then cooked overnight to be shared for brunch on New Year’s Day.

It is hearty and rich, creamy and smooth everything we love about our Pumpkin soup. But don’t just take our word for it head into your local Soul Origin and either try it within a sipper on the go, share it for dinner with a large and a take home salad or enjoy it all to yourself with a regular in store.
