Makes 6 to 8 servings

  • 2 tablespoons butter, plus additional for buttering

  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup chicken stock

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 3 pounds pumpkin, peeled, seeded, cut into chunks, and boiled in salted water to cover until tender, about 20 minutes or a little longer, well drained, pureed and drained again, 2 cups measured out, remaining puree, if any, reserved for another use

  • 3 whole large eggs, separated, whites beaten until very stiff

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Generously butter a 11/2-quart souffle dish. Dust the inside well with the cheese. Turn the dish upside down and gently knock out any excess.

  2. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a medium-sauce saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring to prevent it from burning, for 3 minutes. Whisk in the stock and cream all at once. Season well with salt, pepper and ginger. Whisk over medium heat until smooth and thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove the mixture from the heat and beat in the pumpkin puree. Cool slightly.

  3. Beat in the egg yolks, once at a time, beating very well after adding each one. Stir one-third of the egg whites into the pumpkin mixture to lighten it. Gently fold in remaining egg whites.

  4. Spoon the mixture gently into the prepared dish. Sprinkle lightly with cheese. Bake until puffed and well browned on top, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve this simple vegetable recipes immediately, very hot.
