Preparation

  • Step 1 - Pumpkin pie, for a simple and effective meal
    Start by precooking your tart base. To do this, place your pie crust in a previously greased dish, place a sheet of baking paper on top then place lentils (or baking beads) on top. Cook for 15 minutes at 350°F (180°C).
  • Step 2 - Pumpkin pie, for a simple and effective meal
    Meanwhile, prepare the pumpkin flesh. After removing the skin, cut the flesh into cubes and cook them in a pressure cooker for 10 minutes. If you don't have a pressure cooker, cook them for around twenty minutes in a saucepan filled with hot water.
  • Step 3 - Pumpkin pie, for a simple and effective meal
    Then, brown your onions for a few minutes in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil. Once cooked, place them in a salad bowl with the eggs, cream, thyme, salt, pepper and mix well.
  • Step 4 - Pumpkin pie, for a simple and effective meal
    Once your base is cooked, place the pumpkin pieces on top. Pour your pie mixture and bake everything for 25 minutes at 350°F (180°C).
  • Step 5 - Pumpkin pie, for a simple and effective meal
    And there you have it, your pumpkin pie is waiting for you!

Observations:

Why put a sheet of parchment paper and lentils on the bottom of the pie?
This is the best way to cook your tart base before adding its filling. Once you have used the lentils for this recipe, you can save them and reuse them to cook other tart shells. You can also use reusable cooking beads. In any case, don't forget the sheet of baking paper between the dough and the lentils/cooking beads because otherwise, they would sink into the dough during cooking, thus preventing a very smooth tart base and causing you some difficulty in removing them...

What can I replace the cream with?
You can replace it with yogurt, soy cream or even coconut cream. Its flavors will pair perfectly with pumpkin!

What should you replace the pumpkin with?
You can replace it with another squash such as butternut.

How do I store my pie?
Wrap it in cling film and you can keep your pie for 3 days in the fridge.

How do I accompany my pumpkin pie?
We love to accompany it with a mesclun salad. A portion of pasta and vegetables will also be perfect! And to add a little crunch to the taste, sprinkle a little crushed nuts on top or sunflower/pumpkin seeds.
