Ok, maybe I’m boring you by now with my Pumpkin dishes and I also promise that something else will come soon. However, there is still this one, delicious Recipe that I do not want to withhold from you. It’s just so incredibly good and fits the season perfectly. If you are like me, then you still have a few Pumpkins standing around, which you have received as a gift. Many of my circle of friends know that I write a food blog and all wanted to please me at the same time. That’s why I’m currently stocked up on Hokkaido, butternut and nutmeg squash. In fact, I’m not going to complain about it either, I’m very happy about it. Thanks to all pumpkin friends who thought of me (Andi, Marianne, Angie & Co.).
Chickpea and pumpkin salad with tahini dressing
Baked pumpkin is simply a must in autumn
I chose a butternut squashfor this recipe, which tastes a little sweeter than its peers. To match, I use a homemade curry powder that I mix with some high heat oil and sea salt. Add to this a can of chickpeas, mix once properly and off into the oven. The squash and chickpea mixture is simply gorgeous, because while the butternut squash still remains soft and squishy, the chickpeas get really crispy and crunchy.
What makes the salad special is the dressing. I love Tahini and you? For me it enhances almost everyone and everything and I can hardly do without this magic. At the same time it is really easy and quick to make. In comes tahini, lemon juice, sea salt, maple syrup, garlic (fresh or granulated) and about water to dilute.
Any green salad you can think of will work as a base, Baby spinach or Kale , mixed with a handful of cherry tomatoes. Voilá!
Ideal for this I recommend homemade Spelt bread , wholemeal roll and a handful of pumpkin seeds.
