Are you enjoying this season as much as I am? I love this time where the atmosphere is changing from bright summer days to cozy winter feelings, with all its happy holidays. Fall is in full swing and I’ve got a perfectly fitting dish for you with this healthy pumpkin gratin recipe!
“Pumpkin spice and everything nice”
I enjoy spending more time in the kitchen these days and fall has lots of great flavors to work with. This season goes in hand with lots of great food so I’m all about experimenting with that right now. I think we are all familiar with the potato gratin, which is lovely as it is and very popular at dinner parties. Gratin means that it has a nice baked crust on top of it, but you don’t have to have potatoes under it. Why not use one of fall’s (and mine too!) favorites? That has to be pumpkin of course, so I just gave it a try and came up with this healthy pumpkin gratin! 🙂
For the pumpkin gratin I’ve used Alpro cuisine as a plant based alternative to cooking cream. My version of the gratin isn’t vegan though, because I still used cheese. But if you want to go vegan with it just replace it with vegan cheese or leave it out. It’s a quite simple but really tasty recipe. Go try it out and enjoy the taste of fall!

- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
- Cut the pumpkin in small blocks (or use frozen pumpkin pieces) and put them in an oven dish.
- Next cut the shallots in small pieces and crush the garlic with a garlic press. Add them to the oven dish as well.
- Now make a sauce from the Alpro cuisine with the thyme, salt and pepper.
- Pour this over the pumpkin and add some Parmesan or feta and walnuts or pine nuts to taste.
- Place the pumpkin gratin in the oven for 35-40 minutes.
- Check after 35 minutes if the pumpkin is done. Is the top getting brown but is the pumpkin still a bit hard? Then cover the oven dish with some aluminum foil and keep in the oven for a little while.
