Seasonal Serving Idea: Use Pumpkins as Soup Bowls!

Why use porcelain facsimiles of pumpkins to serve seasonal soups when you can go right to the source and use real pumpkins? Carve a large one as a terrine or hollow out several mini pumpkins for individual serving bowls.

First spotted with a pumpkin soup recipe over at Sunset, we've rounded up a few more recipes here at The Kitchn where you could use the inside of the pumpkin for the meal and the outside for serving:

Roasted Red Kuri Pumpkin & Coconut Soup
Pumpkin Soup with Bacon
Pumpkin Tortilla Soup
Clean-Out-the-Pantry Pumpkin, Peanut, & Ginger Soup
