“You can stay fit eating pumpkin because it’s low in calories, it’s good for your eyes and purifies your body. It’s rich in fibre and diuretic!”

 

PUMPKIN AND CHOCOLATE ITALIAN TART

Ingredients

Short pastry (here the recipe: just add grated orange peel or orange flavouring)

Ricotta: 150g

Plain chocolate slivers: 100g

Boiled pumpkin pulp: 400g

Egg: 1

Sugar: 1 spoon

How to do it

1)      Prepare the short pastry following this recipe. Let it stand in the fridge for nearly 30 minutes.

2)      Mix pumpkin pulp with ricotta, the egg, chocolate slivers and sugar.

3)      Roll out 2/3 of the pastry and cover the bottom of a cake tin (26cm diameter). Fill with the pumpkin cream. Mould the remaining pastry into strips and use them to decorate. Bake for about 40 minutes, 180° C.

Some tips

–          If you don’t like pumpkin, try this tart with blueberries and ricotta or add raisins to the ricotta cream!

–          Freeze the dough for 5-8 minutes to make perfect strips.

–          If you don’t serve it immediately, wet the surface with egg whites and sugar before eating it. It will become really bright!
