Taste changes with the seasons. When it gets colder outside, our body craves savory and velvety flavors than in the summer, when it can be fresher and more acidic. How fitting that autumn is used primarily for vegetables that bring exactly that. First up: the pumpkin. It tastes not only in hearty dishes, but also very well in a delicious porridge.

The recipe for pumpkin and applesauce

This is how it works: Cut open the pumpkin, remove the seeds and cut one half into small cubes. Cover the other half with cling film and put in the fridge for the next occasion.

The apple is also cut into cubes, the walnut kernels are roughly chopped and lightly roasted in a pan. If you are allergic to walnuts, you can leave them out or replace them with other nuts or seeds that you tolerate. Cashews, for example, are often very well tolerated by allergy sufferers.

Now put the butter in a saucepan and heat it. Sweat the pumpkin cubes in it for a few minutes and then add the apple cubes. Both are steamed for a few more minutes and then devitrified with 50 milliliters of water. With the lid open, everything should simmer for about ten minutes.

Then divide the contents of the pot into two halves, puree one half with an immersion blender and set the rest aside as a topping.

In another saucepan, bring the oat milk to the boil and stir in the oat flakes. Also add the apple and pumpkin puree, cinnamon, a pinch of salt and the agave syrup for sweetness, mix everything together and let everything simmer on low heat until a creamy paste is formed.

Now it’s time to serve. Put the pumpkin and apple porridge in a bowl, cover with some of the cooked apple and pumpkin mixture and then some of the toasted walnuts. Sprinkle everything with a little cinnamon – and then you can enjoy.

Enjoy your meal!
