I feel that this recipe belongs in a subforum of it's own, entitled "the weird and the wonderful" or maybe "things you never thought would actually taste good".

 

I made this recipe for the Vegan/Chopped challenge (hosted by Isa Chandra). The challenge was to make a brunch dish involving all of the following ingredients: Butternut Pumpkin, Fresh Rosemary, Popcorn and Apricot Jam. Quite a challenge huh? This is what I made: Pumpkin and Rosemary Popcorn Crumble - sounds weird but it was actually REALLY delicious!

I also submitted a second entry - Lemon Rosemary Popcorn Cupcakes with Pumpkin Apricot Glaze. They were also quite nice although not quite as amazing as the crumble:

That IS weird! I can see how it would be good though, the rosemary seems the strangest to me mixed with all the sweet things but I'd totally try it. It's certainly pretty looking.

In my country it is called butternut pumpkin. I thought the use of 'butternut' would make it clear. Do you guys have something called a butternut pumpkin?

Hmm... I will look it up.

 

Found it!

 

Wikipedia explains: "Butternut squash (Cucurbita moschata), also known in Australia and New Zealand as butternut pumpkin, is a type of winter squash. It has a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin. It has yellow skin and orange fleshy pulp."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butternut_squash

 

Americans call the veggie you used butternut squash. Pumpkins are a different kind of squash.

I know that Americans call it squash. But I'm an Australian and it's all pumpkin to us.

As well as the Cinderella carriage variety, in the UK pumpkin is also generic term for 'gourds' or what you call 'squash' in the States. Now we get more varieties of these vegetable fruits in the supermarket, squash is the term more commonly used. But I think both are essentially interchangeable, particularly in the kitchen.

I love them all, squash, pumpkin, whatever we call them! It got a little cold here finally, so I'm stuffing acorn squash for dinner tonight. Are those acorn pumpkins down under?grin.gif

Now I know how easy they are to grow, I'm going to try growing different varieties next year. Little ones would definitely be preferable to the monsters I've grown this year.

 

I'm going to do whole pumpkin stuffed with pumpkin and toasted walnut or almond risotto soon. I've also got a big bag of yellow split peas coming with my next wholefoods order, so thick golden soup is going to be on the menu for probably the rest of Autumn and Winter combined!

That sounds great to me. My mom often added either sweet potatoes or some winter squash/pumpkin to her split pea soup for sweetness. :thumbup:

Tonight I'm stuffing the acorn squash with brown and wild rice with portabella mushrooms, onions, celery, and probably some other stuff. smiley.gif

@ledboots I'm not sure about acorn, I don't think it's a variety that we get much down here - I've never seen it for sale. But I assume it would be pumpkin as well. This is the only thing that we call squash.

Funny. Gourds for us are the decorative ones. The squashes that very few people would eat, the hard little ones.

 

And this is what we call yellow squash. That funky shaped one is called a scalloped squash in the US.

Definitely one of the more unusual recipes I've seen but very intriguing.

That sounds delicious! lick.gif

I'm not a fan of pumpkin/squash in purees, but it do like the flavor. I definitly will make this!

 

Are pepitas pumpkin seeds hulled?

 

I will change the apricot for apple butter.
