Savory Roasted Little Pumpkins
Labneh, Zaatar, Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, Pumpkin Seed Oil
Earthy autumn flavors, intense nuttiness, creamy textures and a bit of crunch describe this petite pumpkin side-dish charmingly served in its own shell.
Green-hued Austrian pumpkin seed oil contrasts with the burnt-orange pumpkin. It is used as a finishing oil, to add a deep complex taste and striking color. Labneh, a strained yogurt, adds rich and tangy notes while zaatar, a spice mix consisting of thyme, sesame seeds, sumac, and salt anchors the dish with warm earthy aromas and flavors. Roasted seeds bring the third element of pumpkin to the dish. Served with the lid on, guests are delighted to lift off the top and behold the unexpected presentation and enjoy the wafting aromas of the season.
