This recipe is an adaptation of this Baked pumpkin with porcini mushrooms recipe. I saw brown sugar pumpkins in the shop and I thought about this recipe I made a while back.
Simple and tasteful this recipe goes great as a side dish or a main dish. We ate it with meat cooked on the grill and it was great. The combination is so versatile.
- 1 brown sugar pumpkin
- 5 cloves garlic, peeled and cut in small pieces
- Olive oil
- 1 red onion peeled and chopped
- Red chili pepper
- 100 ml sour cream
- 1 tablespoon turmeric
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 100 g coral mushrooms
- 200 g porcini mushrooms
Preheat the oven at 450º F. Cut the lid off the pumpkin and reserve it. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon and keep them to one side.
Heat a frying pan over a medium heat. Pour in a splash of olive oil, then add the chopped onion and chopped garlic, Cook gently for 10 minutes until onion is soft. Add the mushrooms, cinnamon, turmeric, salt and pepper. Before is done add the sour cream.
Put the pumpkin on a baking tray. Add inside the mushroom mix. Put in the oven for 1 hour and 20 min. Take the lid off and leave it for another 20 min. The pumpkin is ready when you can easily push a knife into it. Bring it to the table and open it up in front of everyone. Cut it into thick wedges and tuck in, leaving the skin. Serve with seasonal greens.

Looks delicious. There are small squashes in the supermarkets at the moment that would make an individual portion (not sure I could persuade my husband to eat it, although he’s eaten stuffed marrows in the past).
Thank you. Sounds great! I thought of them too after I baked the pumpkin. Individual portion will look great for a party or a fancy dinner.
I once saw a TV chef cook the small ones with some sort of cheese soup/sauce inside. Perhaps you could make a fondue inside one?
I could do it
Looks so Autumn! Hope to try soon.
Ok, I don’t even LIKE mushrooms and I’m gonna have to try this. Looks AMAZING!

You are welcome

Oh my god! That looks fabulous. I love pumpkin, and there is no such thing as too many mushrooms, so I must try this one.

Thank you. I will
This sounds amazing!!
I make a dish called Lordaeron Surprise that is baked in a pumpkin!
Oh my…this looks beyond amazing !
Bookmarkin this one. But if I make it, will use zucchini stead of shrooms, since mushrooms are illegal accordin to Torah.
That sounds great!
I love your recipe. 🧡 I have both butternut and kabocha squash in my kitchen right now and this has inspired me to use them similarly.
My colleague gave me some mushrooms from the country here in Cote d’Ivoire (unknown type), and the Nigerian vendor had some beautiful pumpkins, so tried this out. Unfortunately, the grocery store happened not to have sour cream this week and I didn’t have turmeric, so I used a local pepper blend that are pungent, and yogurt. Also unfortunately, this week’s yogurt turned out to be lumpy!
Still, the very bitter mess was not terrible when on the sweet pumpkin, although I was afraid to give it to my colleague X-D
Good luck next time!
This sounds delicious. I am definitely going to try it.
I know someone who would love this! It looks very appetising. xx

I’ve never heard of brown sugar pumpkins before. This looks delicious! 😋🍂🎃 Siobhan x ~ Vegan Babe Life
This looks absolutely delicious, and lots of fun as well!
I can’t wait to try this! Definitely a completely new dish to me.
I’m sure it’s hard now to find pumpkins since it’s winter (and I’m in Wisconsin) but this looks delicious. Yes I’m going through all your post. Yes I love them. Yes it’s tempting me to eat meat. But I love everything ☺️
The taste of pumpkin is tasty itself. I like pumpkin!
Reblogged this on Crackling Pork Rinds.
this is a masterpiece 😀
For a change of pace, I would leave the chili peppers out and add peaches.
This is a gorgeous dish. I really like the idea of baking inside the pumpkin; I’ll certainly be giving it a try.
