Pumpkin is a rustic vegetable that is mostly eaten cooked, although it can also be enjoyed raw. And good news, you can cook it in different ways. You can let it cook, cut into cubes, in a broth with herbs before putting it in a blender to make a soup. It is also very good when cut into cubes, simply placed on a baking tray with salt and a drizzle of olive oil. As a gratin with grated cheese, it works wonders. But it can also be enjoyed sautéed in a pan to accompany poultry or game.

For a change and try a festive starter, you can try an exotic soup with coconut milk and to bluff at the table, slip pumpkin cubes into a stew or couscous. With its slightly sweet flavor, it is overwhelming in flavor!

And for the most reluctant, it is always possible to try pumpkin desserts. Flans, cakes or even tarts, they are always popular, like the famous pumpkin pie flavored with orange zest, cinnamon, ginger and cloves, so dear to the Anglo-Saxons.
