Kitchen World Tour: Botswana

The national dish of Botswana is Seswaa, a shredded beef stew. But we had beef yesterday and tomorrow I have a Brazilian BBQ planned so I decided to go vegetarian for tonight’s meal.

I found this really complex Botswanan Pumpkin Soup recipe to try. When I say complex, it has three times the ingredients of any pumpkin soup I have ever made. Sweet potato, potatoes, apples, mushrooms, cumin, paprika, sage, thyme, cinnamon, etc. I served it in the pumpkin shell from which I made the soup. The whole family loved it. Christopher smashed the leftovers.
