How to make Pumpkin Apple Cream:
The greenest part of the leeks can be discarded if it is in bad condition or you can also use it to prepare this pumpkin and apple cream. Remove the roots, cut the leeks in half and then into small pieces. Heat a casserole with a jet of oil and cook the leeks until they are a little golden.
Peel the apples and cut them in pieces. Peel the pumpkin and cut it into rather small pieces so that it cooks quickly. If you like, you can add a carrot or two to the recipe.
Trick: you can reserve a quarter of an apple to decorate the cream at the end.
When the leek has been in the pan for 3-4 minutes, add the pumpkin and apple and sauté these ingredients.
Cover the vegetables with the water or the broth. You can make a broth with vegetables or with a bouillon cube. Add a little salt and pepper. Cook for 15 minutes or until vegetables, especially squash, are tender.
When you see that the pumpkin is already tender, mash the preparation to get a creamy texture. To do this, put the vegetables in a container, remove a little of the broth and reserve it in case you need more. Crush the pumpkin and apple cream until a fine cream is left. If it is too thick you can add the broth that you have reserved from cooking the vegetables. Once the cream is crushed, if you like it finer, it can be passed through a Chinese or a strainer.
Return the cream to the casserole and heat it up again. Taste for salt and pepper and rectify if necessary. If you like it with a creamier point, you can add a little milk cream or coconut milk at this time. Likewise, you can add curry if you want to enjoy a pumpkin and apple curry cream. Let it boil for a few minutes and it is ready to serve.
All that remains is to serve this delicious and nutritious pumpkin apple cream recipe. If you have decided to reserve the quarter apple, cut it into small cubes and add them to the plate, as well as a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of pepper.
