BEFORE BOILING:

Immediately rinse before cooking the pumpkin, remove the loose flesh with seeds, peel and cut into cubes.

BOILING:

Pumpkin diced put a small amount of cold water, if we want it to its taste and aroma passed into broth (eg. Cooking soup). If you cook the pumpkin as a separate dish, toss it into boiling water - thanks to retain most of their juices. Pumpkin we cook for 30 minutes. Time start to count from the time of re-boil water. Immediately after setting with salt (approx. 2 teaspoons to 1 liter of water). It is also slightly sweetened (approx. 1 teaspoon per 1 liter of water). You can add the milk and chopped garlic. Boil under cover - this shortens the processing time and reduces the loss of vitamins. To verify that the pumpkin is already cooked, you can stick a fork or a knife. If it falls softly, it is ready.

ONCE BOILED:

After cooking, drain off the pumpkin. After boiling water containing nutrients can be used for sauces, soups, etc.

SERVING TIPS:

Serve sprinkled with breadcrumbs and chopped parsley, sprinkled with pepper and clearing melted butter. We serve as an addition to fish and meat.

Bon appétit!
