As the headline says, this is what pumpkin is for me and this is what an autumn plate sometimes looks like for us. Sure there is more to come, like chestnuts, beets or spices but a good recipe to make it a start. What are your favorite dishes for the season or whats your must have ingredient these days? Taking one ingredient and making it shine in different ways, is something I always enjoy. It does not complicate things yet makes a very interesting experience on your palate.
For this recipe I decided to rather keep it simple with using the pumpkin in three ways. One could easily add a cream or a kind of soup in the middle of the pumpkin slices too but that comes down to your motivation. My recipe includes roasted pumpkin (I think I tend to roast every vegetable I get my fingers on but it is just to tasty), a mayonnaise based on the seeds oil and simply roasted seeds. My aromatic twist is brought in by sage which makes it a bit mediterranean too. Some good old skyr to bring it all together and that is it.
…and does your mouth starts watering? No problem, just try it out yourself. Mix it up with another herb or add another ingredient and make it your own!
