Season: Autumn/ Winter
Servings: 8
Diet: Vegetarian option
Time: 40-50 minutes
Difficulty: Easy


Ingredients :
• 3 pumpkins weighing approximately 1 kg.
• 4 balls of burrata
• 1/2 white baguette
• 2 sprigs of rosemary

Salsa verde:
• 180 gr. parsley
• 90 gr. mint
• 3 heaped tsp. capers
• 3 tsp. mustard
• 1-2 lemons, zest and juice
• 2 cloves garlic (grated)

Preparation:
1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees.
2. Cut the pumpkins into 8 parts (seeds removed) and divide over a baking tray. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, pepper and chilli flakes and a good dash of olive oil. Rub the pumpkins well with the olive oil so that all sides are covered. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, turning halfway through.
3. Meanwhile make the salsa verde by chopping all the ingredients together in a Magimix (or chop by hand) and add a dash of extra virgin olive oil and water until it has a smooth consistency. Taste and add salt, pepper and/or extra lemon juice or mustard to taste.
4. Chop the baguette in a Magimix into coarse breadcrumbs together with the rosemary. Heat a generous dash of olive oil in a frying pan. Fry the breadcrumbs with a good pinch of salt and pepper until golden brown and crispy.
5. Divide the pumpkin between the plates. Tear the burrata in half and place next to the pumpkin segments. Spoon a few teaspoons of salsa verde over the pumpkin and finish off with the pangrattato (crispy breadcrumbs).
