Quinoa Filled Hokkaido by Gordon Ramsay

Quinoa Filled Hokkaido

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2013 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com

Autumn means PUMPKINS, one of the very low calorie vegetables. They are a particularly good source of dietary fibre, as well as a range of vitamins and minerals.
Quinoa (a mix of white and red), cooked in vegetable stock, scented with cinnamon, tossed with pumpkin seeds and cranberries, is stuffed into Hokkaido pumpkin halves, then baked until tender for a delicious, gluten-free, vegetarian meal. You can easily replace the Hokkaido with another squash like acorn or kabocha.

  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Small yellow onion, cut into 1/3-inch dices
  • 3/4 tsp Ground cumin
  • 150 g Quinoa, rinsed in cold water and drained
  • 450 ml Vegetable stock
  • 50 g Dried, unsweetened cranberries
  • 1 / 800 g Hokkaido pumpkin
  • 30 g Pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1-2 tsp Fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Heat the olive oil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. When it is hot, add the diced onion and ground cumin and cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is soft and golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the quinoa to the saucepan and stir to coat the grains. Add the stock and raise the heat to high. When the liquid comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low, add the cranberries, and cover the pan. Cook at a slow simmer until the liquid has been absorbed, 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the Hokkaido pumpkin in half. Scoop out and discard the seeds and fibers. Place the pumpkin halves on a rimmed baking sheet and set it aside.
  4. When the quinoa is cooked, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the pumpkin seeds, cinnamon and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat the oven to 190C/375F.
  6. Divide the quinoa filling among the pumpkin halves. Transfer the baking sheet to the oven and roast until the quinoa is hot and the flesh of the pumpkins is tender when pierced with a skewer or fork, 50 minutes. Serve immediately.

Fresh Ginger, Walnuts and Sesame Seed Logs by Gordon Ramsay

Fresh Ginger, Walnuts and Sesame Seed Logs

Full of quality and tasty ingredients, these sesame logs with walnuts, oats and fresh ginger are easy to make and are perfect as a on the go energy snack, a sweet lunchbox filler, or as an afternoon pick-me-up without the refined sugar. Instead of logs, you can shape these into balls or bars if you prefer. Can’t find Medjool dates? No problem. Just use regular deglet noor dates, which are equally delicious and sweet with a firmer texture. Medjool dates, by contrast, have a rich, almost caramel-like taste and a soft, chewy texture.

  • 120 g Walnuts, toasted
  • 45 g Rolled oats
  • 200 g Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1 tbsp Freshly grated ginger
  • 1/3 tsp Black salt
  • 50 g Sesame seeds, toasted
  1. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the walnuts to the hot, dry pan in a single layer. Cook, stirring frequently until the walnuts start to brown and they smell toasted, about 5 minutes. Transfer the walnuts to a plate or baking tray to cool completely.
  2. Process walnuts and oats in a food processor until finely chopped. Add in dates, ginger and salt. process until mixture forms a paste.
  3. Shape level tablespoons of mixture into 5cm long logs and place them on a baking-paper-lined tray. Chill for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, stir sesame seeds in a frying pan over medium heat for 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Cool. Roll logs in sesame seeds and chill for 1- 2 hours or until firm.
