A simply and fast recipe to warm and color these cold and grey autumn days 🙂 With few ingredients we are going to prepare a pumpkin and cauliflower cream with whole grain oat flour, a pinch of sweet paprika and fresh ginger. Enjoy it.
It’s finally pumpkin time: I love it so much! Today I would like to share a recipe with this colorful seasonal vegetable, which will help us to prepare a cream, also using its peel. We do not always wonder if the peel of some vegetables can be cooked, and we generally discard it. With this preparation you will see the possibility of using also the external part of the pumpkin. We will complete the dish with stems of kale. Usually when I buy some leaves of kale I find the refrigerator a little bit ‘”crowded”, in fact, its leaves are large and long. The stalks are the hardest part, so I find it practical to cut them immediately and get two benefits: a less “crowded” refrigerator ☺ and well cooked stems that require a different time to be ready, than the leaves.
Today, with this simply recipe, we are going to combine cornmeal mush, a traditional “poor” italian food, tofu, from East, and pineappple, the most famous exotic fruit. As you know, with Gusto Vegetariano, we propose a natural vegetarian cuisine, using Km 0 products. But sometimes we make exceptions, because our intent is also to help different cultures to meet up in the kitchen 😉
We hope you will enjoy this recipe and you will be exited to try new combinations using feoreign and equosolidal products.
Usually the first recipe I immagine when I see mushrooms is with rice, but this time I would like to give you another idea: so I’ve choose spelt, but cooked as a risotto. I’ve also used kale, but I thought that the plate would have needed some colour more…I’ve bought some pumpkin and the result is beautiful and tasty…..so enjoy this recipe!
Here we are in the middle of autumn. The street’s markets are covered of new colors….Now we are reached from the green of broccoli, chards, spinaches, chicory…then from the white of cauliflowers, fennels, leeks….from the purple of some cabbages and then from the orange of pumpkins. Today a simply colored recipe wich can warm in an autumn day: pasta with pumpkin, potates and leek, seasoned with sage, thymes and pistachio nuts. Enjoy it 😉
I have already talked about how good and tasty it can be a dish if prepared with the right attitude: when simple and organic ingredients are cooked with the magic of love, passion or gratitude, even an easy recipe becomes a great success… and can also leave an indelible mark in those who eat it. Think about grandmoms and how they cook for their grandchildren: the tastes and aromas of their plates are always enriched from their big love.
Today I share this coloured recipe and it is with a big joy that I do it trought this video artistic tutorial by Carlo Battelli and Fabio Fasulo with Luca Perciballi’s music. I hope you enjoy it and hope you will have the desire to cook it with renovated passion, in your kitchen 😉
When the days get very hot during the summer, I usually cook in the coolest hours, dishes that I can serve cold for lunch or dinner. Today I suggest you this nice match, which I decided to call “Tao” rice, consisting of two varieties of rice: the semi-whole Balilla and the Black Venere. Adding coloured raw vegetables and tofu will be a delicious dish to enjoy in this time of the year.
