In order to enjoy Halloween a little longer, Elise from the blog And so we cook is delighting us with a black and orange Bataille Food ! If you want to know more about the Bataille Food, please check out the French version of this blog post.
I have to admit that I had no idea what to cook at first … Orange had to be pumpkin; but I am not so a big fan of black seeds. So I had to think hard. I love pumpkin and make a lot of soups with it. As a result, I ventured realising this pumpkin parmentier. I still rather prefer soups; but I wanted a change. Speaking about pumpkin soup, I just made one so tasty, can’t wait to share it with you guys !
- 1,5 kg. of pumpkin (butternut)
- 2 potatoes
- 600 gr. of turkey fillet
- 1 bouquet garni
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 200 gr. of white mushrooms
- 2 teaspoons of poppy seeds
- (optional : 100 gr. of Emmental / Swiss cheese)
- Peel and cut vegetables.
- Put in a large casserole dish, cover with water and add salt, bouquet garni and turkey fillet.
- Cook until vegetables are ready, for 30 to 40 minutes. Reserve a bit of cooking water to make the purée.
- Preheat oven to 200°C.
- Wash and slice mushrooms, reserve.
- Shred turkey fillets and put at the bottom of an oven dish.
- Add mushrooms and mix.
- Mash vegetables and add some cooking water to get the texture you want.
- Cover meat with purée.
- Sprinkle with poppy seeds, Emmental (optional) and bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until Emmental browns.
