The one with the pumpkin pie

I might be a bit late to join the pumpkin party, but I wanted to share one of my favourite pumpkin recipes over here. This pie is pretty easy to make, most time is needed to chop the pumpkin. Maybe there's some sort of strategy that I haven't heard about, if you have any tips and tricks, please feel free to share :-)


What you'll need:
  • 2 small hokkaido pumpkins, deseeded and chopped (I removed the skin) 
  • 2 onions
  • 2 large free range eggs
  • 1 small tin of tomato puree
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 big cup of vegetable stock
  • a big piece of (soft) goat's cheese
  • 6 sheets of ready made pastry
  • thyme, salt, and pepper, to taste



What you'll need to do:
Start by chopping the onions. Warm the olive oil in a big pan and stir fry the onions, then add the chopped pumpkins, and stir with a wooden spoon for a couple of minutes. Add the vegetable stock and let it simmer slowly with the lid on (it took me about 20 minutes), until the pumpkin is soft and most of the vegetable stock has evaporated. Take your pan of the heat and preheat the oven at 180ºC / 350ºF. Line a buttered pie tin with the pastry. Stir the eggs and tomato puree through the onions and pumpkin, season with thyme, salt, and pepper, and fill the tin with this mixture. Don't forget to add lots of goat's cheese before it goes into the oven! Remove the pie after 35 minutes, I served it with a green salad.

  14. That looks really good! I will have to try that. I bet my husband will love it since he is British and has that European palate (which I am actually starting to move toward myself savory over sweet). Thank you for sharing Marieken.
