Pumpkin is the protagonist ingredient in autumn in many recipes and I usually cook it with legumes or potatoes to make it more rich. Chickpeas and pumpkin soup, for example, is perfect for your children: you can smash chickpeas with the fork and make everything very creamy. For mum and dad, season with ground black pepper and rosemary!
- Drain and rinse chickpeas with fresh water. Place in a small saucepan with a laurel leaf and cover with 1/2cup of water. Boil 20minz
- Remove the skin from pumpkin and cut into small cubes. Stir fry them with a small piece of onion and a Tbsp of EV olive oil. Add some water (not too much) and a Tbsp of tomato sauce. Cook until soft and tender.
- Drain chickpeas and pour in the pumpkin saucepan. Stir and and cook all together for about 4-5min. Turn off the heat and set aside.
- Cook pasta and drain “al dente”. Add to the chickpeas and pumpkin soup, adding, if necessary, some pasta cooking water.
