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


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.


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


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!
