October's here. So's Sascha Wolhandler, to tell you how to make your pumpkins as tasty as your jack-o-lanterns are scary.
Sascha's October Pumpkin Recipes
Cut in half. Scoop out all of the seeds (reserve for roasting), continue to scrape out all of the stringy pumpkin. Turn pumpkin over and roast in 350 degree oven until tender--40 minutes to 1 hour.
2 cup cubed roasted cooked pumpkin
1 cup of cubed granny smith apple
1 onion roughly chopped
1 teaspoon thyme
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped minced garlic
1 tablespoon chopped minced fresh ginger
1 sheet of puff pastry ( frozen puff pastry is fine)
4 tablespoons chopped blue cheese
4 tablespoons chopped goat cheese
1 beaten egg
Cut puff pastry into four 6-inch circles and reserve. Heat oil in sauté pan and add the onions, throw in the garlic, ginger, thyme, and apples. Sauté until apples are soft. Salt and pepper to taste. Combine apple and onion mixture with cooked pumpkin. Pile mixture into center of puff pastry circles and leave a good half-inch border. Top each galette with a tablespoon of each of the cheeses.
Pull pastry around the edges of the mixture and pinch around to make crust edge, leaving the center of mixture exposed.
Eggwash the edges with beaten egg and brush. Bake in 350-degree oven until brown, around 20 minutes.
Roasted Stuffed Pumpkin
