If you would like to make something different for Thanksgiving, you should try this Greek Kolokythopita (Pumpkin or Butternut Squash Pie). It may be different from what you are used to but it’s so delicious you will love it. Pumpkin is not as easy to find in Greece as butternut squash, so you can use whichever you prefer.
I am sure you are fed up seeing pumpkin recipes, but when I saw this cute little butternut squash in the supermarket, I couldn’t resist buying it. It’s been years that I wanted to make a pumpkin pie but never got around making it. I read a lot of pumpkin recipes on line and in the end I made something unique. I made this delicious Pumpkin Cheesecake Tart, using Greek yoghurt, cream cheese and honey.
If you are carving a pumpkin for Halloween, here are a few idea what to do with your Pumpkin meat after carving it.
For this month’s challenge of the Royal Foodie Joust, I made Veal in Dark Beer with a Sweet and Sour Pumpkin Sauce.
Kolokythopita (pronounced koh-loh-kee-THOH-pee-tah) in Greek Κολοκυθόπιτα is a compound word from “kolokythi” (squash) and pita (pie). This Greek savory pie is made with butternut squash and fresh myzithra, a cheese from Chania, Crete.
This autumn fruit crumble is not just another usual crumble as it quite unusual. Apart from apples, which is one of the fruit for autumn recipes, I combined it with delicious quince and with pumpkin.
