Sweet and smooth pumpkin hummus for the fall season. A gently spiced savory pumpkin hummus or a delicious pumpkin pie hummus are all options! These gluten-free, vegan, and oil-free pumpkin dip recipes are ideal for a lunchbox snack, picnic, thanksgiving party, festival pumpkin appetizer/dessert, and more. To say I'm hummus crazy is an understatement; in addition to producing the best creamy hummus, I've also posted recipes for beets hummus, red pepper hummus, and even chocolate desserts hummus. But now that it's pumpkin season, you know it's time to include this fall vegetable into your cooking. Even better, you can eat this smooth pumpkin dip in two different ways. The first is a savory pumpkin hummus with a little seasoning, while the second is a sweet, comforting pumpkin pie hummus. Why are there two of them? To be honest, I couldn't decide between them. With all of the standard hummus components, pumpkin puree, plus a handful of fall accents, the savoury version is mildly spiced. Meanwhile, the sweet pumpkin pie hummus uses pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup (or your preferred sweetness), and a few more ingredients to create the ultimate pumpkin pie dessert hummus/snack that won't make you feel like you're eating chickpeas! While the pumpkin pie hummus has a sweet flavour, it is still high in minerals, protein, and fiber, making it an excellent lunchbox or mid-afternoon snack with apple slices or crackers. Fortunately, no matter option you like, the pumpkin hummus recipe is super easy to make and only takes a few minutes to combine in a food processor. Ingredients in pumpkin hummus regular pumpkin hummus. You may use canned pumpkin puree or prepare your own pumpkin puree (don't forget to add plain pumpkin, not pumpkin pie fillings). Chickpeas: canned or home-cooked chickpeas are also acceptable options. Tahini: I use homemade tahini; keep in mind that different brands have varying flavors, so pick one that isn't too bitter and that you like. Lemon juice: for the finest flavor, I suggest using fresh lemon juice. Personalize the quantity to your liking. Just a little salt can help to bring out the flavors (for the savory and sweet pumpkin dip). Seasoning: this flavorful pumpkin hummus may be seasoned in two ways. You should add pumpkin spice (it works!) Or go with a more traditional recipe. Fresh parsley and pumpkin seeds are my favorite garnishes (roasted and sometimes lightly spiced). A sprinkle of smoked paprika or red pepper flakes, as well as a drizzle of olive oil, would be excellent additions. Hummus pumpkin pie dessert With a few changes, the pumpkin pie hummus recipe is identical to the one above: Instead of tahini, I recommend using slightly bitter nut butter like cashew butter. Tahini, on the other hand, will work. Sweetener: I like to use maple syrup, although date syrup or brown rice syrup would also work. For this sweet hummus, I recommend crushing granulated sugar (such as coconut sugar, brown sugar, or sweetener like erythritol/stevia) into powdered sugar beforehand. Extract of vanilla: I make my own vanilla extract. Optionally, a drop of homemade caramel sauce or condensed milk or condensed coconut milk might be drizzled over this dessert hummus (add a little bit of cinnamon or pumpkin spice for extra flavor). Recipe variations & optional add-ins White bean hummus: instead of garbanzo beans (chickpeas), white beans might be used as a basis for your favorite pumpkin hummus. You might also use another variety of squash, such as butternut squash, in this dish. Cinnamon: a sprinkle of cinnamon may be added to the savory pumpkin hummus if desired. How to make hummus from pumpkin Prepare the pumpkin puree in step 1 Skip this step if you're using canned pumpkin puree. Otherwise, the pumpkin puree must be prepared first. Pre-heat the oven up to 170 degrees celsius or 340 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, wash the exterior of the pumpkin and cut it into 2-inch thick wedges (or slice it in half and follow the method). After that, scrape out the meat and seeds using a spoon (keep the seeds for another recipe). Brush the pumpkin slices lightly with oil and a pinch of salt before spreading them out in a single layer on baking pans. The pumpkin should then be baked until it is soft. At the 30-minute point, I recommend checking on the pumpkin. If you're making pumpkin hummus, you may roast the garlic at the same time as the pumpkin. I recommend roasting an entire head of cauliflower and repurposing any leftovers. Because roasted garlic has a mellower flavor, you'll probably want to use more in the pumpkin dip. Then, take the pumpkin out of the oven and let it cool until it's safe to handle. Then put it in a blender and puree it until smooth. If the cooked pumpkin's skin is soft, you may let it on. If you choose, you may remove it; it will peel off easily once the pumpkin has been baked. You may toast the garlic at the same time as the pumpkin if you're preparing pumpkin hummus. Roasting a complete head of cauliflower and reusing any leftovers is something I encourage. You'll definitely want to use more roasted garlic in the pumpkin dip because it has a mellower flavor. After that, remove the pumpkin from the oven and set it aside to cool until it is safe to handle. Then purée it in a mixer until it's smooth. If the skin of the cooked pumpkin is tender, you may leave it on). You may remove it if you like; it will peel off simply once the pumpkin is roasted. Mix the pumpkin hummus in step 3 In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients and process until smooth and creamy. Depending on your machine, the time it takes to get smooth will vary. Pausing the machine a few times to wipe down the edges and ensuring everything is pureed evenly is recommended. If you don't want to use olive oil, you may add a little cold water (1 tsp at a time) to get the right consistency. If you're using canned chickpeas, you may also use a couple of tablespoons of the juice from the chickpea can. Unless you're using raw garlic, I recommend putting it near the blade to avoid it not distributing or pulverizing properly. If you use roasted garlic, you won't need to do anything. I recommend starting with half of the seasonings/lemon juice suggested. Then, once the hummus is smooth, taste it and adjust the seasonings as needed, pulsing for just a few seconds between every addition to fully incorporate it into the pumpkin hummus. You may either eat the hummus right away or chill it for at least two hours to let the flavors merge and develop. How to make and store ahead of time Make beforehand: any handmade ingredients (tahini, pumpkin puree, cooked chickpeas) may be prepared many days (if not weeks) ahead of time! Because this pumpkin hummus tastes much better after it has had time to "rest," I recommend making it a day ahead of time if you have the time. Refrigerate any remaining pumpkin hummus for up to 5-7 days in an airtight jar. Pour a small coating of olive oil over the hummus before storing it to further "protect" it against spoiling. Freeze: transfer the hummus to a container in the fridge container (with room for expansion) and freeze for up to 4 months (with a coating of olive oil on top, it may last longer). Serving instructions Depending on the pumpkin dip you pick, you may serve it in a variety of ways. Though both are wonderful as a pumpkin dip/appetizer with your favorite toppings, I prefer hummus at room temp for the best flavor and consistency. Take it from the fridge 30 minutes before you serve it. However, this is purely optional! Hummus with savory pumpkin Seed crackers or fall leaf crackers are examples of crackers/chips. I don't feel bad dripping olive oil over the dip while serving because we don't use it in the recipe. Pita bread comes in two varieties: pita pocket and fluffy greek pita. Chips from a pita. Naan or manakish are examples of other flatbreads. Carrot, celery, bell pepper, cucumber, and other chopped vegetables are among my preferences. You could also make a rainbow veggie platter or a colorful lion plate with the pumpkin spice dip with red, orange, and yellow bell peppers! Pumpkin hummus with sliced red and orange bell peppers Hummus with pumpkin pie Apple slices, for example. Crackers with a sweet taste. Pretzels. Sugar chips with cinnamon. You can also make these homemade with pita chips. Additional serving options. Spread on sandwiches, wraps, bagels, bread, and other items. Tossed into salad bowls. To serve with baked potatoes or sweet potatoes. As a "quick" pasta sauce (thinly sliced with a little water, stock, or milk). Pumpkin hummus makes an excellent icing for savory cupcakes.

- Pumpkin cheesecake in two layers
If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: cheesecake is the answer to all of life's problems. This recipe is really easy to make, and the pumpkin pie tastes will be incorporated into the cheesecake batter. There's no need for as many dishes and spoons as you might think. The pumpkin is incorporated into the filling creating a creamy, spicy cheesecake. Although I like the separate layers here, I believe the two swirling together would be stunning.
- Cheesecake pops (pumpkin)
I used to make my cake pops out of leftover cake or cakes that were a little underdone. But how often do you have leftover pumpkin cake? This cake is quite simple to make, and I would even double the batch. While you're at it, prepare a loaf for yourself. The cake crumb is blended with a sour cream cheese icing before freezing after it has been cooked and cooled. Coat the hard cake pops with chocolate and chill until set. With a sprinkle of caramel or some nuts cut into the cake crumbs, these would be delicious.
- Creme brulee with pumpkin
Getting a smooth consistency when adding a thick puree like pumpkin to a creamy custard mix is crucial. To ensure the combination is as creamy and lump-free as possible, I use an immersion blender to blend the components before sieving them.

Salad with pumpkin, feta, and walnuts Salads are one of my favorite things to make and eat for healthy lunch or as a side dish with supper.

All you need is a creamy white sauce with double cheese. It adds a particular touch to a fall get-together or family supper.

Your new favorite fall dip is pumpkin hummus! It is quite simple to make, healthful, and tasty, and it only takes ten minutes from the beginning to the end. Hummus is one of my favorite foods, and I could eat it every day for any meal. Growing up in the middle east, my childhood consisted primarily of hummus and falafel. Hummus is a versatile dish that may be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Alternatively, serve as a dip with crackers or vegetables as a snack. Recipe for pumpkin hummus Because we're enjoying fall tastes, I prepared a big amount of pumpkin puree and began sprinkling it on everything! It's perfect for making spaghetti sauces, soups, and pumpkin hummus, among other things. You'll adore the texture of this vegan pumpkin hummus, which is thick and creamy. It's a highly nutritious and simple-to-make dip that's generally served with toasted pita bread, but celery sticks, carrots, or chopped cucumbers can be used instead.

You'll need the following ingredients to make this pumpkin hummus: Chickpeas — either soak dry chickpeas overnight before heating or use canned cooked chickpeas.

Pumpkin turkey chili
Autumn comfort meal to savor! Ground turkey, canned pumpkin, spices, and soft white cannellini beans simmer in this creamy pumpkin turkey chili. This simple recipe yields a delicious, soul-warming dish. There are options for cooking on the stovetop or in a pressure cooker. Perhaps it's just a fortuitous coincidence that those three components blend so well together! Those two words conjure up an image of the season "fall" in an instant. Especially if you add a bulky sweater, your favorite cappuccino, and a pinch of cinnamon spice to the mix. The actual putting together of the ingredients turns out to be rather good. Turkey pumpkin chili ingredients. The ingredient list appears to be lengthy, as it is with most chili recipes. The seasonings! The fruits and veggies! The proteins, of course! But once you have everything in the pot, I swear this is a one-dish meal that takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. Ground turkey: I like dark (thigh) flesh since it's fattier (and hence more flavorful), but you may use ground turkey breast instead. Optional extras: try ground chicken, pig, or even a veggie sausage instead of turkey. Carrot, celery, and onion are examples of vegetables. To save time, you may generally buy them already prepared and chopped. Cannellini beans are my first pick when it comes to canned white beans. I adore their plump form and creamy richness. You may use any little white bean, such as navy beans or pinto beans, as an alternative. Make sure it's unsweetened puree, not pie filling when using canned pumpkin puree. Ground coriander, cumin, and paprika are required, as well as a huge dose of red chili flakes. Herbs from the garden: herbs from the garden make a significant impact. Use all three of the classic thanksgiving of fresh rosemary, sage, and thyme if you can locate them. Dry herbs can also be used, but only half the amount stated in the recipe — 1 1/2 teaspoons — should be used. If you wish to make this a vegetarian dish, use a low-sodium broth or veggie broth instead of chicken stock. I'm going, to be honest, and say heavy cream. Heavy cream isn't required. Because of the pumpkin puree and white beans, the cooked chili has a lovely creamy texture. However, only a few teaspoons towards the end of the dish make it much silkier and cozy! If you don't like dairy, try full-fat oat milk or another unsweetened dairy alternative. The addition of pumpkin to chili White beans, chili spices, and turkey all go well with pumpkin. Are you taken aback? No, adding pumpkin to turkey chili does not transform it into a dessert. The flavor of pumpkin in chili is surprisingly faint. Consider butternut squash or sweet potato as examples. Pumpkin puree also adds a rich (and beautiful) orange hue to this chili. I'm a sucker for the mix of silky winter squash and savory tastes, as demonstrated by pumpkin pasta in parmesan garlic cream sauce. Canned pumpkin puree provides a gentle sweetness, creamy texture, and deep color to the basis of a substantial soup in this meal. Canned pumpkin puree provides a gentle sweetness, creamy texture, and deep color to the basis of a substantial soup in this meal.
"kibbeh" refers to bulgur-based foods with onions and spices. This combination is mixed with a variety of ingredients, including tomatoes and goat. Layered and baked, stuffed, deep-fried, or eaten raw, it can be fashioned into balls or footballs, layered and baked, stuffed, deep-fried, or eaten raw. Pumpkin is used in this vegetarian kibbeh dish, which is packed with seasoned leaves. Sorrel has a lemony flavor, but chard or kale can also be used if 1 tablespoon of lemon juice is added to the filling. If you use fine bulgur, the dough will have a gritty feel. Ingredients
- 2 1/4 pound peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch sections pie pumpkin or butternut squash (about 6 cups)
- 12 cup bulgur (fine) (see tips)
- 2 tbsp flour (all-purpose)
- 1 medium grated onion
- 1/4 cup fresh basil, freshly chopped
- 1 orange's zest
- 1 lemon's zest
- 1 teaspoon fresh marjoram, finely chopped
- A quarter teaspoon of salt
- 2 tbsp. Chickpeas, dry
- 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 12 medium finely sliced onion
- 2 cups coarsely chopped sorrel, chard, or kale, loosely packed
- 12 tablespoons sumac powder (see tips)
- 14 teaspoon spice combination 12 teaspoon salt
- 12 cups of oil
Step 1: In a mixing dish, place the chickpeas for stuffing. Allow 8 to 24 hours to soak in enough cold water to cover by 3 inches. (alternatively, cover chickpeas with 3 inches cold water in a big pot.) Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat. Let it rest for one hour. Step 2: Make the dough: over high heat, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the pumpkin (or squash) is very soft, about 20 to 25 minutes. Drain it and put it in a big mixing bowl. Mash, then add bulgur and flour and stir thoroughly. 1 1/4 teaspoon salt, grated onion, basil, orange and lemon zest, and marjoram knead thoroughly when cold enough to handle. Step 3: To make the filling, rinse the chickpeas, rub off the skins, and cut them in half in the meantime. On high heat, bring a small pot of water and let it boil. Cook, stirring occasionally until the chickpeas are cooked, about 10 minutes. Drain. Step 4: dry the huge pot completely. Heat the olive oil over medium heat. Cook, stirring periodically, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until onion is soft. Cook, stirring constantly until the greens are wilted, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chickpeas, sumac, and salt. Place in a mixing basin. The pot should be washed and dried. Step 5: roll 2 teaspoons of dough into a ball with damp hands. To form a small bowl, place it in the palm of your left hand and push your right thumb into the middle of the dough. (for further information, see tips.) Close the dough over approximately 1 teaspoon of stuffing in the center. Form the kibbeh into the shape of a football and smooth it out using damp fingertips. Place the cookies on a baking pan. Continue with the remaining dough and filling. Heat the canola (or corn) oil in the big saucepan over medium heat to 350 degrees f after you've formed approximately half of the kibbeh. (heating the oil takes around 20 minutes.) Continue shaping the kibbeh until you have a total of 32. Step 6: two layers of paper towels should be used to line a baking sheet. The kibbeh will be fried in four batches. Add one-fourth of them to the heated oil and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, rotating once or twice, until browned. Replace the baking sheet that has been prepared. Between batches, reheat the oil to 350 degrees f. Kibbeh should be served at room temperature.

(extra chia seeds and flaxseeds can also be used in these energy balls or these chocolate peanut butter energy balls.) Toasted pecans, which give protein and healthy fats and seem to be the component that truly makes these energy bites flavor like pumpkin pie, were added for a hint of richness and extra fall-ness.

Pumpkin and bean
I adore pumpkin as much as the next person. I adore the color, the flavor, and the variety of shapes and sizes available. I use it to make pasta, risottos, and soups. I adore it in ravioli and can't get enough of hearty pumpkin gnudi. But I must reveal something. There's one thing about pumpkins that gets old after a few months. It has something to do with the mush factor. By the end of January, I'd progressed to the cruciferous stage. Vegetables with texture, bite, and even a hint of crunch. So I stocked up on broccoli, cauliflower, and perhaps a half-dozen large crisp fennel bulbs at the farmer's market last weekend. But there were the orange and lovely pumpkins (actually, not pumpkins, but another species of winter squash). They were yelling at me to buy only one slice of pizza. So I did, figuring I could at the very least break it up and add it into the minestrone i was making. Yes, by the time the remainder of the soup was ready, the cubes would have turned to mush, but so be it. I decided to ask Assunta how she made this when she was chopping off my hunk-o-pumpkin. "with beans," she said, as though this was the standard response. She was chopping and talking at the same time. She grabbed my hunk of squash and chopped off a few pieces with her little knife to demonstrate how she chops the pumpkin for this meal. Each piece had a completely different size and form, and none of them was anything close to being normal. "that way they cook unevenly and don't just turn into a huge mush," she said when I inquired why. I believe the squash I purchased from Assunta is known as Zucca lunga (or piena) di napoli. It's a squash with a firm flesh, vivid orange color, and a pleasant flavour. This is something I'm sure would work with butternut. Beans: I used dried cranberry beans from our garden from last year. For this dish, try to use dry beans because they taste so much better. In this situation, the beans must first be soaked before being cooked. Although Assunta didn't add sage, it's usually an excellent idea with beans and pumpkin. The ingredients needed: Pumpkin, 1 kg / 2 pounds 6 fresh sage leaves, coarsely chopped 1 medium onion, diced 3 garlic cloves, chopped 4 celery stalks, chopped
- 2 c. Beans, cooked
- 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- A half teaspoon of black pepper
Instructions Cut the pumpkin into a variety of shapes and sizes. Assunta carved them into half-moon shapes, which i attempted to imitate. You want a variety of shapes and sizes, but they should all be around 1 to 1 and a half inches in diameter. Get rid of the skin. Over medium heat, heat a saute pan large enough to contain everything. Pour in the olive oil. Add the onions and celery once the pan is heated. Stir in the salt and pepper. Allow it simmer for about 12 minutes, or until the veggies are softened. Do not allow it to darken. Cook for another five minutes after adding the garlic and sage. Stir in the pumpkin and roughly a cup of water. Cook until the pumpkin is almost done, adding a little more water if necessary. Keep in mind that you're not searching for mush here. You still want some bite to the pumpkin, which you're probably not used to. Think of it as a cross between zucchini and pumpkin. This should take around 25 minutes. Add the beans and stir when it's about 10 minutes from being done. You may add a little more water and let it cook for a little longer. The goal is to blend the tastes together. This recipe is delicious as a side dish, but it's also filling enough to serve as the main course of a vegetarian meal.

Pumpkin risotto is one of my favorite comfort foods. This version is based on traditional Italian recipes and is simple to prepare yet satisfying and light. It's the ideal dish of autumn delights. This post may contain affiliate links, which earn us money if you make a purchase. More information may be found on the policy page. Many years ago, I prepared baked pumpkin arancini with pumpkin risotto as the basis, but for some reason, i never made them again. That is, until last year, when we were in bologna. When we went to see a balsamic vinegar maker (more on that in my post on food in bologna), one of their ideas for using one of the vinegar was to put it on top of pumpkins' risotto. I began visualizing right away. To add to the excitement, I didn't get around to publishing this recipe last year, so I've been hanging on to it until it was almost ok to bring up pumpkin again. Yes, I've been keeping this delectable delicacy hidden from you. Now that it's acceptable to speak pumpkin again, I should add that this should be at the top of your pumpkin cooking must-do list! What type of pumpkin do you recommend? Squash and pumpkin are called "Zucca" in Italy, as I noted when I posted my pumpkin ravioli. According to what I understand, the definition of Zucca varies by region, and there are lengthy names, similar to how we use butternut squash or acorn squash to refer to different types in English. However, what appears to be the usual squash/pumpkin for pumpkin risotto is lighter and sweeter than what we'd name "pumpkin" in the united states. Some say butternut squash has a similar flavor to pumpkin, although it's a little heavier. I discovered and used red kabocha squash, which is sweeter than butternut but not as thick. It resulted in a fantastic risotto. If red kabocha (or any other kabocha) is unavailable, red kuri, butternut, buttercup squash, or a pie pumpkin can be substituted. In a risotto, what rice should you use? Arborio or carnaroli rice, as well as various other regional rice varietals, are used to make risotto. Arborio is the most popular and easily obtained in most stores, yet many experts suggest that if you can get it, carnaroli is preferable. These (along with a few other Italian rice kinds) have a short grain, which is ideal for risotto. You get the perfect blend of chewy yet not too starchy. When it comes to cheese, parmesan is the only way to go if you want a genuinely italian flavor. In addition, the mild saltiness provides a nice counterpoint to the squash's sweetness. The cheese also provides creaminess. A dash of old balsamic vinegar, as indicated by the balsamic vinegar producer, provides the last touch. It's the ideal complement since the mild acidity cuts through the dish's richness and tastes so effectively. This pumpkin risotto is the ideal autumn dish. Smooth, warming tastes with a comforting, easy-to-eat texture. I strongly advise you to build some soon! Other risotto recipe suggestions:
- Butternut squash risotto with chicken and arugula
- Asparagus and zucchini risotto with lemon
- Risotto with saffron
- Also, check out the archives for additional hearty fall dishes.
- 12 oz pumpkin (peeled and de-seeded weight) or red Kuri/butternut/buttercup squash
- 1 small/medium onion
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 tablespoon extra olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of butter 12g
- 300g arborio rice 12 cup
- 3 cups light stock (vegetable or chicken if not vegetarian) 720ml
- 1 dash nutmeg, 34 cups freshly grated parmesan, 25g
- 1 tsp pepper
- To serve, 1 teaspoon of old balsamic vinegar
Instructions If not already done, peel and de-seed the pumpkin/squash. Cut the dice into little pieces. The onion and garlic should be peeled and diced. In a medium skillet over medium heat, warm the oil and butter before adding the onion. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the onion softens, but not brown (reduce heat or add a little more butter, if needed). Cook for a few more minutes, until the garlic and pumpkin/squash, soften (about another 5 minutes, depending on the type of squash/pumpkin and the size of the pieces). Often, the easiest way to do this is to cover the skillet with a lid and allow the veggies to sweat. To make a rough puree, mash the pumpkin/squash. Cook for 10 minutes after adding the rice. Are risottos good for you? The simple carbohydrates in processed arborio rice offer fewer minerals and vitamins than the whole grains, but when converted to glucose, they give rapid energy to the body. Furthermore, seafood risotto contains beneficial omega-3 fatty acids that can help to decrease inflammation and promote cardiovascular health. What is the calorie count in pumpkin risotto? 1 small serving of pumpkin risotto has 29 grams of carbohydrates, 29 grams of net carbs, 3.7 grams of fat, 6.8 grams of protein, and 186 calories. Why is risotto referred to as the "death dish"? I've made risotto before, but I believe the reason it's regarded as the death dish is that there's such a wide range of what's nice on the risotto scale "she stated "it's all about the rice's consistency and texture for me, and not having too many other things competing with it.

Nom, Phil: it's ideal for a group meal. The outrageously excellent samphire, kfc, pumpkin, and buttered naan to soak it up are not to be missed. If you don't want to eat the salty crab 'dip,' don't. Gurkiran grewal: the pumpkin dish is wonderful. I didn't care for the goat. Assim ahmad: pumpkin, hake, duck breast, bhel puri, and cockles are all winners. Two courses per person, including rice/bread and a few sides, was more than enough.
Michael hadwin: fantastic thin-crust pizza with a wide variety of toppings. The combination of mushrooms, ricotta, and pumpkin seeds was fantastic. Retro music and simple wine and beer selections! Pandora pand: is the world's largest pizza!!! We experimented with goat and pumpkin!! Yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum.

The film pumpkin eater, featuring Anne Bancroft as an exceptionally prolific lady and peter finch as her cheating husband, was released in 1964. The movie was directed by jack clayton and written by harold pinter from penelope mortimer's 1962 novel of the same name. The title is a play on "peter peter pumpkin eater," a nursery song. Jo armitage (Anne Bancroft), a lady with an unclear number of children from three marriages, becomes depressed and distant after learning that her third (and present) husband, jake (peter finch), is unfaithful to her. Jo and jake take a first cautious move toward reconciliation after a sequence of loosely connected incidents in which jake's infidelity is matched by his dependability as an earner and a parent. Jo's repeated childbirth and jake's adulterous relationships are the two main themes. Jo's psychiatrist is the one who brings up the subject of her fertility. He speculates that she may be unhappy with the messiness or vulgarity of sex and is justifying it to herself via delivery. This is not the case. Meanwhile, evidence mounts that jake has been having relationships while seeking a lucrative screenwriting career. Philpot (maggie smith), a young woman who lived with the armitage family for a period, is the first hint of his adultery. After the children inform jo that the mother fainted into jake's arms, jake responds wildly and unconvincingly. The second hint comes from bob conway (james mason), a friend who claims his wife had an affair with jake while working on a film in morocco. Finally, after a tense grilling by jo, jake admits to some of his infidelities. She retaliates by having an affair with her second husband after expressing her rage by violently attacking him. Jake becomes icy as a result of this. In the film's conclusion, jo spends a night alone in a windmill that the couple has been refurbishing (near the converted barn she had lived in with her second husband and children). Jake and their children come to the windmill with meals the next morning. When jo sees how happy her children are with jake, she shows her support by receiving a tin of beer from him, a move that mimics another scenario in the windmill from a happier period in their marriage. "though pumpkin eater appears to be a compilation of womanly miseries on the surface, it plays like a house on fire, almost usually fueled by actress bancroft, who could possibly strike dramatic lightning from a recital of tide tables... And her dazzling scenes with finch, set against the cacophony of a mostly faceless army of offspring, are a litany of love, hatred, deceit, envy, and painful home monotony. Script effectively brings to life the key characters in this narrative of a ruined marriage," variety said, "but pinter's early use of flashback method is confused. " the tempo quickens as the drama grows more heated, thanks to director jack clayton's leisurely, almost casual opening. The new york times's bosley crowther criticized pinter's script as well as clayton's direction, which he thought was "somewhat mechanical, too, tumbling his drama in the ambiguity of jump cuts and fleeting images... With a decent bargain more body to the drama and point to the characters, mr. Clayton would have a photo that comes close to representing truth. There is something phantasmally ludicrous about this well-meaning, ambitious film," the monthly film bulletin wrote. It's possible that pinter's genius is the wrong type of brilliance to unleash on the writing of such a nerve-wracking, terrifying topic. Jo... Is an exceedingly good, but nearly intractable, the topic for a film: worthwhile since neurotics are rarely given a square, compassionate, and insightful deal. The picture has sparked a lot of discussions. In a 1999 obituary for Penelope mortimer in the guardian, Giles gordon described Harold pinter as "the perfect translator and interpreter" for the film version of mortimer's work because he emphasizes what is "written between the lines. Pinter regularly offers actors what will become once-in-a-lifetime opportunities: to meryl streep, obviously, in the french lieutenant's woman; to peter finch and Anne Bancroft in the pumpkin eater, one of the most under-appreciated of all British films; and, unforgettably, to dirk bogarde, both in accident and the servant," wrote David hare in 2006.
Quinoa salad pumpkin
I'm a major admirer of quinoa and would eat it every day if i could! I'm fortunate in that h like it as well, so I make it frequently. Sometimes i'll season it and have it as a complement to another dish, like this roasted pumpkin quinoa salad, and other times i'll simply season it and eat it as a side dish. I also forgot about it on the burner and it went to mush, so it'll be porridge the next morning... So, returning to the recipe: the pumpkin is grilled with red onion, cumin, coriander, fennel seeds, and maple syrup, and it's very excellent as a side dish. The quinoa is seasoned with mint, coriander, sumac, lemon, pomegranates, pepitas, and hazelnuts, and topped with some pomegranate, pepitas, and hazelnuts - what's not to like? For the roasted pumpkin, you'll need the following ingredients:
- 1/4 medium kent pumpkin (or your favorite pumpkin) (about 3 cups of chopped pumpkin)
- 1 red onion, peeled and sliced into tiny wedges
- 1 teaspoon coriander powder
- 1 teaspoon of fennel seeds
- 1 tsp cumin powder
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- For the salad:
- 1/2 cup quinoa
- 1 large handful of mint
- 1 large coriander handful
- Olive oil, 1/2 tbsp
- 1/2 lemon, freshly squeezed, or to taste
- 1 teaspoon sumac
As a finishing touch do as below:
- Pomegranate seeds, 2 tbsp
- 1 tbsp pepitas (dry roasted)
- 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped dry roasted hazelnuts
Instructions Preheat the oven to 220°c (425 degrees f). Cut the pumpkin into bits and combine with the onion on a baking pan coated with parchment paper. Toss with the remaining ingredients to coat. Roast for 25 minutes or until cooked through, spread out in a single layer. Depending on the size of your pumpkin bits, cooking time will vary. Take out the cooked chicken from the pan and put it aside. Wash the quinoa and combine it with 3/4 cup of water in a small pot. Bring to a boil, covered. Once the water has boiled, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. When the rice is done, fluff it with a fork and place it in a large mixing basin. Allow cooling slightly before serving. Notes To prepare the pepitas and hazelnuts, dry roast them. Cook until brown in a separate frying pan over medium heat. To remove the majority of the skins, place the hazelnuts on a tea towel and massage with your hands. Then chop coarsely. What options are there to add to quinoa to make it taste better? Some of my favorite quinoa flavors are cumin, dried bay leaf, turmeric, salt, and black pepper. I also like to add fresh garlic and herbs like parsley, dill, and cilantro to it. Seasonings of your choosing can be added to the saucepan at the same time as the liquid and cooked as indicated. Is quinoa salad better served hot or cold? For optimal results, serve the salad cold. The dressing may be made the day before, the pepper can be roasted the day before, and the vegetables can be chopped the day before. Wait until the salad is nearly ready to serve before adding the dressing. Does quinoa make you gain weight? Many people find it more satisfying than other grains like cous cous - but with just 12 cups of cooked quinoa per serving, it's easy to overeat, and because quinoa has more calories than the same amount of carbohydrates like brown rice or whole-wheat pasta, you can find yourself packing on the pounds. Is quinoa beneficial for reducing abdominal fat? That's because it's a complete grain, meaning it has protein, fiber, b vitamins, and complex carbs all in one package. Eating grains like quinoa will speed up your metabolism and help you burn abdominal fat faster.
