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.

Ingredients (for 4 people):

  • pumpkin 500 gr
  • cauliflower 300 gr
  • leek 100 gr
  • fresh ginger
  • sweet paprika
  • whole grain oat flour
  • salt q.s.
  • extra virgin olive oil q.s.


  1. Wash all the vegetables.
  2. Cut pumpkin and cauliflower into pieces.
  3. Slice the leek and fry it lightly in a saucepan with two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
  4. Add the pumpkin and cauliflower and cover with water; wait until it reaches the boil and cook for about 20 minutes.
  5. Put 4 tablespoons of whole grain oat flour in another saucepan; gradually add 4 glasses of broth (obtained from pumpkin and cauliflower) and with a whisk turn until all the lumps are removed.
  6. Cook until you get a creamy mixture ; room to taste.
  7. Now blend the vegetables removing first the water in excess (keep it to cook a risotto); you’ll get an orange cream.
  8. Mix together the orange cream with the oat mixture; serve with some grated fresh ginger and sweet paprika powder; if you have a handful toasted almonds in your pantry, you can mince them and give to the recipe a nice crunchy note.
