One veggie that Russians love is pumpkin. Svet just adores it when I cook pumpkin for us to eat. We like it mashed or just big chunks plain boiled with a little real butter on top. But this recipe will tantalize the pumpkin lovers taste buds, just about anywhere in the world…
Lets make Baked Pumpkin:
1lb pumpkin (peeled and chunked)
1 tbsp real butter
1/2 cup real cream
3-4 tbsp dried and finely ground bread-crumbs (prefer black bread)
2 eggs (hard boiled)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp almonds ground
Boil pumpkin chunks in a sauce pan with slightly salted water, a pinch of salt will do.
Put the boiled pumpkin in the bottom of a baking dish.
Sprinkle the top of the pumpkin with the dried, finely ground bread crumbs.
Dice the eggs and spread over the top of bread crumbs.
Then pour the cream over top of everything.
Add the spoon of butter to the middle of the dish, to allow it to melt and spread as it bakes.
Bake in the oven at 250 degrees (F) for a half an hour. Watch closely because cream burns easily.
Before serving sprinkle with sugar and ground almonds. I like to grate a little cinnamon on top also…
Windows to Russia!
