  • 1 pcs Butternut type pumpkin
  • 50 g shelled pumpkin seeds
  • 1 pcs shallots
  • sugar
  • vegetable broth
  • pepper
  • salt
  • extra virgin olive oil

For the recipe of pumpkin with a spoon, cut the pumpkin into three parts, as seen in the photo on the right. Dig the round part with a spoon. Season it with a little oil, salt and pepper. Place it on a plate together with the cap (if you wish, you can use it as a lid) and bake at 200 ° C for 40 minutes.
Decort the elongated part and cut the pulp into cubes. Slice the shallot and fry it in a pan with a little oil; add the pumpkin into cubes, moisten with 2 ladles of broth and cook over low heat for about 20 minutes, adding more broth as it dries. Cook 2 tablespoons of sugar in a pan with 2 tablespoons of water and a pinch of salt.
When the sugar has melted, add the pumpkin seeds and stir until the sugar sticks to the seeds, "granifying them". Turn off and let cool. Remove the pumpkin from the oven, fill it with the cubes cooked in the pan and complete with the crunchy seeds.
