1 kilogram of clean red pumpkin and cut into pieces

2 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces

Golden onion, finely chopped

means finely chopped leek

4 tablespoons of fresh liquid cream

60 grams of grated Parmesan Seasoned

a slice of fresh ginger

extra virgin olive oil, to taste

salt and pepper, to taste

60 grams of spicy gorgonzola

20 grams of chopped toasted hazelnuts

chives, to taste


For the cream of pumpkin and ginger with gorgonzola, put in a large saucepan a little extra virgin olive oil, leek and onion, they will dry on low heat until it becomes transparent. If they tend to darken instantly add a few tablespoons of hot water well. Combine pumpkin, potatoes and slices of ginger and brown slightly.

Pour hot water to cover two-thirds vegetables. Season with salt, cover and let cook over low heat until the pumpkin is tender.

When the pumpkin is cooked, drain three-quarters of the cooking water and pass it all on to the mixer: the texture should be creamy. Cook the soup over low heat for even a few minutes, then add the cream and Parmesan and season with salt and pepper mix everything for two minutes. Serve the soup with pumpkin and ginger, garnishing the dish with diced spicy gorgonzola, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, the grains of toasted hazelnuts and some chopped chives. Bon appétit!

MATCHING: recommend a white semi-aromatic such as Grechetto Colli Martani, a wine with a good acidity and flavor, able to balance the sweet taste of the pumpkin. In particular, we suggest the Grechetto produced by the Company Antonelli San Marco, a Montefalco, in Umbria.

Dear Fabio, we thank you for your comment. greaves – beautiful crisp – certainly can enrich the soup, as well as excellent crostini. We use them too often we. They are all great ideas to customize the cream as we like it :-)
