Rather than sweets, I go healthy on Halloween with pumpkin!  Porridge is such a comfort food for me, so here, I roasted fresh pumpkins and combined it with sweet white rice.  It  has such a natural sweetness with a smooth and creamy texture.

Ingredients:

  • Pumpkins (2 small ones)
  • Sweet Rice Powder (1/2 cup)
  • Salt (1 1/2 teaspoon)
  • Water (3 cups)
  • Olive Oil
  • Pine Nuts

3) After pumpkins have been roasted, then with knife, remove the pumpkins from skin (throw out skin), and place pumpkin in blender.  Add 1 cup of water and blend pumpkin until creamy smooth texture.

    I love pumpkin, so this will be another dish to add to my pumpkin recipes. And to think at one time I thought it was only for pie. Thank you for adding to my Autumn repertoire, Moon.
