stuffed pumpkin

I found these small and cute pumpkins at the gorcery store the other day. And of course I knew immediately that I had to make stuffed pumpkins out of them. You can usually find those mini pumpkins at your local Farmer’s market or places like that.

And there are endless varieties with which you can fill your pumpkin. From ground beef to some kind of rice skillets or even soups. There are so many delicious ideas. However, I have filled my pumpkins with one of my favorite dishes – my beloved porridge.

I cooked my oats with water just like I usually do. I also added a grated purple carrot, mushrooms and garlic. Since I prefer to use the protein cheese from Eatlean (advertising without order), my pumpkins also have a lot of protein. But if you want, you can also stir in a unflavored protein powder.

I hope you like the recipe and try it out. And all of you, who love pumpkin as much as I do, can find many more delicious pumpkin recipes here on my blog. For example my pumpkin quiche or my yummy pumpkin pesto!

Have a nice day and see you all at the next recipe on sunday.
