Hearty Pumpkin Beef Soup
Pumpkin puree tends to boil over and get frothy. To avoid a mess reduce heat and stir until it settles. A small portion of pumpkin can be reserved and added with the last set of ingredients.
You can use 1 tablespoon garlic powder instead of garlic cloves.
Any variety of squash can be substituted for the bitter melon.
Any variety of hot pepper can be substituted for the Scotch bonnet chile.
Pumpkin beef noodles can be found in West Indian stores.
