it's rainy in san francisco which is a perfect weather for cooking warm meals. i made use of the inside of carved pumkins. this meal is ready within twenty minutes which is perfect for halloween parties, is very simple to make and the ingredients are also very affordable.
- pumpkin seed oil
- diced pumpkin or squash
- salt and pepper
i cook the rice seperately because i don't like it sticky but some people like to mix all the ingredients. i first cook the onions, garlic and pumkin in a pan with some butter. in a seperate pot i cook the rice with salt, pepper, water and butter for about ten minutes. then i add some parmesan cheese on top of the rice and don't stir it any more. i serve the rice with a layer of parmesan on top and a layer of pumkin, onion, garlic and parsley on top. i also add a little bit of pumkin seed oil on top. happy halloween!
