Ingredients

  • 1.5 kg whole pumpkin
  • 250 ml water
  • salt and white pepper

Method

Slice the pumpkin in half and place face down in an oven tray before adding the water. Cover with foil and place in the wood-fired oven for 40–60 minutes until soft. Alternatively, roast in a 180°C oven until the same result is achieved. Remove from the oven and scoop the flesh from the skin, removing the seeds.

Place the pumpkin flesh in a Thermomix jug and blend until completely smooth and firm enough to hold its shape when plated. Season with salt and white pepper to taste.
