This is a Caribbean vegetarian soup recipe that I found on the website. It's quite different than the other recipes with similar titles that are already posted to this site. Calabaza is a tropical squash with a slightly sweet flavor and firm texture, similar to the taste and texture of butternut or acorn squash.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients (except salt, pepper, and chili pepper) in a large stockpot or Dutch oven. Let simmer for 1 hour. Strain the liquid into a bowl and allow the solids to cool. Puree the cooled solids.
  2. Return the puree to the soup pot along with the strained liquid. Simmer, uncovered, until the mixture is reduced to a syrup-like consistency.
  3. Add the seasonings while the soup is simmering, and serve while still hot.
