Stuffed Pumpkin

Ingredients (1 pax):

  • 1 small(ish) pumpkin
  • 1 cup Quinoa
  • 2 small Zucchini or one bigger one
  • 2-3 mushrooms
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds and walnuts each
  • 1-2 tbsp pomegranate seeds (I forgot them in the picture)
  • 1tsp of maple syrup
  • Salt / pepper / nutmeg / turmeric
  • Some fresh rosemary



  • Chop the top off the pumpkin and a tiny bit at the bottom so it stands better and doesn´t roll over. Take all the seeds out and roast in the oven at about 160-180 °C until soft.
  • In the meantime, cook the Quinoa with a bit of salt and turmeric
  • Chop the mushrooms in small cubes, the spring onion in slices and spiralize the Zucchini.
  • Fry the vegetables in a bit of coconut oil in a pan with some fresh rosemary, salt, pepper.
  • Roast the nuts and seeds and put them aside.
  • Once the Quinoa is ready, mix it with the vegetables and add the maple syrup and stir.
  • Take the pumpkin out of the oven and fill it with the vegetable Quinoa mix.
  • Granish with the nuts and some pomegranate seeds.

Guten Appetit!
