Today I prepared the first Sweet Dumpling (ever). Oh my, I guess this will be my favourite squash/pumpkin and I will grow them every year now.
First I steamed the squash for about 20 minutes.
In the meantime I improvised the filling by making a very small batch of very thick béchamel sauce. I added about 3 tablespoons cream cheese, 2 tablespoons blue cheese, some bread crumbs (I use the ends of my sandwich loaves for that purpose) and chopped walnuts, of course I added some salt, thyme and pepper as well.
I cut open the pumpkin, scraped out the seeds and inserted the filling, and into the oven. So good! The pumpkin tastes a lot like chestnuts (which I love but they are quite pricey). I would say better then the Kuri.
I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do. (E.E.Hale)
