Pumpkin Puree (Πουρές με κολοκύθα)

A super alternative to plain ol` mashed spud!


500 g cleaned and cubed pumpkin

300 g peeled and cubed potatoes

3 tbsps olive oil

1 wine glass fresh milk

1/2 wine glass cream

1 tsp ground coriander 

Salt (pepper optional)


Boil the cubed pumpkin and potatoes in salted water, till soft.  Strain very well and mash, or blend.  It will be quite runny, so return to the hot plate allowing the excess liquid to evaporate, stir continuously to avoid burning.  Once it has stiffened, add the liquids and the coriander, leave on a medium heat, stirring until it has thickened nicely.pumpkin-puree-small
