This translation has been done by an automatic system, therefore we apologize if it isn't perfect. If you find any mistake or you have any suggestion for a better translation, please contact us.


For 8-10 people
1 pumpkin Hokkaido
2 leeks (including green part)
1 piece of fresh ginger
1 sprig of rosemary
1 pinch of cayenne pepper
extra virgin olive oil

For coverage
béchamel sauce
nutritional yeast flakes


Peel the leek and cut into slices the white part chopped and the green part.
Peel the pumpkin (also used the peel and remove only the seeds) and dice: the smaller and before they will cook.
Chop the ginger and rosemary needles.
Saute ginger in a large pan with a few tablespoons of oil, when it starts to sizzle add the leek and let it dry a little stirring constantly with a wooden spoons, then add the diced pumpkin, chopped rosemary needles, pepper, salt, a glass of water, stir and cover with a lid.
Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally and making sure that doesn't stick to the bottom, in which case add a little water.
After cooking the pumpkin with leek should be soft and discard turning them with a ladle, plus the water must have been completely absorbed.
While the filling is cooking, prepare the béchamel sauce.
When the vegetables are thoroughly cooked an oiled ovenproof dish and pour all the vegetables, then cover them with béchamel sauce.
Finish with a light dusting of nutritional yeast flakes and bread crumbs on top.
Bake at 200° C for 20-30 minutes, until the surface has taken on a gratin gilding.

Questa preparazione di zucca e porri è ideale anche per condire una pasta o degli altri cereali (omettendo la besciamella).
Potete semplicemente prepararne un po' di più da usare poi quando sarete di fretta.

Questa ricetta è veramente ottima. Ho solo adoperato la zucca mantovana al posto di quella consigliata ma viene un piatto eccezionale ugualmente. Grazie e tanti auguri a tutti Voi!
