WHY we should never forget about…pumpkins!
Here’s a delicious alternative to traditional pumpkin pie….a bit more..creative and tasty::) It showcases all the flavors of pumpkin…and it’s actually a snap to prepare it 🙂
Creamed pumpkin with porcini salad
Serves 4 people
20 g butter
600 g pumpkin
2 – 3 mushrooms (fresh porcini is best)
1 red onion
30 g freshly grated parmesan cheese
20 g shelled walnuts
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Melt the butter. Peel the pumpkin and cut it into pieces then steam it and blend it with the butter, salt, pepper and walnuts and cook further on medium heat with the sliced red onion, stirring gently until becomes a smooth thick cream.
Clean the mushrooms and rub the soil off with a damp cloth. Slice them thinly, mix carefully with parmesan cheese, marjoram, salt and drizzle with a little olive oil. Pour the creamed pumpkin in bowls and top with the mushroom salad…
I just love this!
