Silvaner, dry, 2012
This aromatic white wine is delightful with its fine, fruity aromas and distinct acidity. This Rhine-Hessian wine specialty gently plays with the mild bite of the ginger and is the ideal pairing for this delicious soup.
Place pumpkin seeds, water, and sugar in a small saucepan. While stirring constantly, heat until the water has fully evaporated and the sugar has caramelized and is amber-colored. The pumpkin seeds should rise slightly in the middle.
Cut onion into cubes and finely chop ginger and chili. If you wish to make the dish milder, remove the seeds from the chili. Halve the pumpkin, remove the seeds with a spoon, and cut the flesh of the pumpkin into cubes.
In a large saucepan, sauté the onions, ginger, and chili in some vegetable oil until translucent. Add the pumpkin and continue to sauté, seasoning with a pinch of sugar, salt, and pepper.
Deglaze pan with white wine. Add the vegetable stock. Cover with a lid and cook on a medium-low heat for approx. 20 – 25 min.
