The first real autumn meal of this year couln’t have anything else in it than pumpkin. It was the first time I used this very easy method to prepare a whole (small) pumpkin. Finally I’m finished with the hard work of cutting and peeling a pumpkin. Put your pumpkin in the microwave for 15 min and after that your pumpkin is so soft, you can almost mash it up. Of course it’s not ready yet. I sauted it following the directions of a recipe from ‘Vegetarisch genieten’ and added coconut and ‘speculaaskruiden’. The last one are spices you use for making ‘speculaas’ which is a kind of cookie.
