Saturday Food of the Day – October 31, 2015

FOOD OF THE WEEK – PUMPKINS!

It’s Halloween week and with all of those scary sweets being put out everywhere you look I wanted to keep with the season but in a healthy way.  How do you do that?  Pumpkins!!!

WHY PUMPKINS?

These sweet, bright-orange squashes are more versatile than you may imagine. Dice and steam them for a side vegetable, feature them in pot pies, soufflés, salads, soups and casseroles, or make cakes, breads, muffins and of course, pumpkin pie. Besides adding a sweet nutty flavor to dishes, a serving of raw pumpkin (85g) is high in vitamin A and a good source of vitamin C.

Pumpkin Creme BruleePUMPKIN CREME BRULEE

By: Rose Marie Jarry, Master Chef at Kronobar

 

 

 

10 minutes + 60 minutes of cooking, 5 servings, gluten-free, vegan.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked white pumpkin
  • 1 ¾ cups coconut milk
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup potato flour
  • 1/3 cup organic coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

caramel topping

  • ¼ cup organic cane sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 330F.
  2. Prepare a large pan with water at the bottom that will be used to create a double boiler. When the time comes, you will place this whole pan (double boiler) into the oven.
  3. Blend all the ingredients together except for the ingredients on the caramel topping list.
  4. Grease individual porcelain bowls that can go in the oven of about 4 inches wide.
  5. Pour the creme brulee mix into the bowls.
  6. Heat up a pan with the ¼ cup of cane sugar inside. Keep the heat on high and stay next to your pan. It will take about 3-4 minutes to get a caramel from this sugar. When it turns brownish color, it’s time to remove from the heat and pour the 3 tablespoons of water on top of the sugar.
  7. Pour a little bit of caramel on each creme brulee and bake in the oven, in the double boiler for 45 minutes. If you are using 1 large bowl to bake the creme brulee instead of 5 individual servings, it might take up to 60 minutes to bake.
  8. You will know that is ready when you shake the bowls a little bit and the creme brulee doesn’t have a jelly texture anymore.
  9. When you take it out of the oven, let it cool down a while before eating it. If you can refrigerate it overnight, it is even better.
  10. Enjoy!
