    I'm posting this recipe in response to a request. It's a family favorite holiday tradition and the recipe is from the Caribbean island of Bonaire. This is a wonderful side dish, perfect with turkey or ham, that could almost be a dessert! Delicious!

      This is a different type of pumpkin dish, perfect for the holidays. I found that the recipe called for too much sugar, so I halved the amount in the souffle as well as in the topping. I also eliminated the water, and used four eggs rather than six. I think I'd add more ginger another time to give it extra zip. This basic recipe really is good, and was eaten up as soon as I served it!
