Pumpkin Curry

Pumpkin Curry
  • 2 lbs pumpkin
  • 14oz (1 package) Firm tofu, optional
  • 4 cups (2 cans) coconut milk (can use light milk, and/or sub in a cup of water)
  • 3-5 tablespoons Vegetarian Red Curry Paste
  • 8 kaffir lime leaves
  • 2 chili peppers (fresh red thai, or 1 jalapeno)
  • 2" fresh galangal (peeled and thinly sliced), or 2 T galangal powder (or ½ equivalent ginger)

We used a marina de chiogga pumpkin, but any firm, yellow-flesh, slightly sweet/nutty pumpkin will do.

Double Layer Pumpkin Bourbon Cheesecake

Makes one 9-inch cake, serving 12 to 16

Cribbed from a co-worker's recipe:

This has been adapted from a few recipes. I made a bourbon glaze, but you can also just put
the bourbon into the batter as described here.
!
Also, two points from Cooks Illustrated:
!
- For a smooth and creamy texture, we blotted the canned pumpkin puree with paper
towels to remove excess moisture before mixing it with the rest of the ingredients. (see
step-by-step instructions below)
!
- Baking the cake in a water bath in a moderate oven also helped give our pumpkin

Empanadas

Empanadas

So, not really a true recipe, but pretty good and pretty easy. Maybe next time we'll get fancy and make our own empanada dough, but for the first try this turned out pretty good.

Butternut Squash Mascarpone Agnolotti

Agnolotti

We had a butternut squash and some mascarpone in the fridge, and I was feeling like pasta. We've done ravioli before, so I thought we should try something new.  So I googled "butternut squash and mascarpone agnolotti" and came up with this recipe. We shamelessly copied it, and it turned out great. You absolutely must go to their site to watch the videos showing how to create the agnolotti.

Drain of any water and scoop out the goop. Let cool.

Use a hand blender to puree the pumpkin until silky smooth.

Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie

We tried making pumpkin pies from scratch (like, starting with a pumpkin scratch), but we never quite got it to come out right. We've reverted to Jon's grandmother's closely-guarded recipe, which comes from the side of a Libby's can:

1 can Libby's pure pumpkin
1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
2 large eggs
¾ cup sugar
½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp ginger
¼ tsp cloves
¼ tsp allspice (optional)
1 pie crust

Mix together sugar and spices in a small bowl.

Pumpkin Ravioli

ravioli.

With the arrival of the fall gourds, we decided to make a pumpkin ravioli. We really enjoyed this recipe. The first time, we didn't have enough ricotta cheese, so we added some creme fraiche as a substitute (seemed to work fine...). We used egg pasta sheets (available from the Eastern Market Grocery), though wonton wrappers are a good substitute. We put the dollops of batter evenly spaced on the pasta sheet (4x6 = 24 ravioli), laid a second sheet on top, and then cut into individual raviolis using a pasta cutter. A little water on the fingertips and squeezing the edges seemed to seal them just fine. This recipe yielded 144 ravioli and used 12 pasta sheets.

We used a marina di chioggia pumpkin the first time (greenish color, oval shape) and a peanut pumpkin the second time (orangish color with white "peanuts" all over the outside.

The original recipe came from http://theunemployedcook.blogspot.com/2006/03/pumpkin-ravioli-with-sage-...
