Cosy blue 💙 pumpkin soup for a rainy evening 🌧 ! . Ingredients . 1 medium blue pumpkin (this is a particular type of pumpkin variety - you can replace with a regular small pumpkin or "potimarron" in French too) 1 red onion 2 tbsps Herbes de Provence 1 tsp ras-el-hanout spice mix 1 to coarse sea salt 4 cups water 1 quail egg (optional - if you have access to quail eggs, we highly recommend it - makes the soup more beautiful, adds delicious flavor + extra protein!) . Instructions . Cut the pumpkin in half. Cut of skin. Scoop out flesh + seeds. Cut pumpkin into roughly 1 in cubes. Using a large casserole, add pumpkin and water and leave to boil in medium heat for 25 minutes (covered). Uncover. Remove water. Smash pumpkin to make a puree using a hand mixer.

It's that time of year again! Pumpkin season. We are making these mouth-watering honey pumpkin madeleines again. In the original recipe, we use our favorite @knobelhoney . Ingredients : . 113g (1 stick) unsalted butter 2 eggs 120g wholewheat flour 1/2 can pumpkin purée 1 tbsp honey @knobelhoney 140g brown sugar 1/2 tsp ground ginger 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp ground cloves 1/4 tsp sea salt 1/2 tsp baking powder Powdered sugar to dust. . Instructions . Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°C). Prepare the "beurre noissette" (or browned butter) by heating the butter on medium heat in a small saucepan until the butter browns. Put aside to cool. Whisk together the wholewheat flour, spices, salt and baking powder. Whisk the eggs, sugar and honey together using a stand mixer or hand mixer. (We use a @kitchenaidfr .) Keep mixing until the mixture is pale and fluffy. Fold in the the flour and spices. Add the cooled butter to the mixture, making sure to add in all of the browned bits. (These will add a lovely nuttiness to your madeleines!) Coat your Madeleine molds with butter. Fill the molds, leaving some space for them to rise while baking. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until risen and slightly browned on top. (When you touch the madeleines, they should have a slight bounce back. Madeleines should not jiggle - undercooked - or be too compact - overcooked.) Leave to cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from molds. Dust with Powdered sugar to serve.
