Piano…..pumpkin pizza

Yippie jeeh! We’ve got a piano in tha house. Last week we drove with a rented car to veldhoven to buy a second hand piano with candles. Wow he is amazing, beautiful and now time to hire a professional piano tuner. Because I think he is really false! And after learn to play some piano, the books are already in the house….on the day we got the piano I made a nice pizza with pumpkin, something else then soup or pumpkin with rice. And last time I ate pizza I can’t even remember!

So here you have the recipe of a squared pumpkin pizza

Ingredients Pumpkin pizza (4 persons)ingr pumpkin pizza

1 medium pumpkin cut in slices
3 twigs of fresh rosemary
4 tablespoons of pine nuts
150 (or more if you like) grams of black olives cut in tiny slices
1 tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar
1 leek cut in slices (very thin) if you can’t handle leek take something else maybe hot chilli pepper
mushrooms something like 100 gram cut in slices also
Some pepper/some Celtic sea salt
4-5 tablespoons of olive oil

for the bottom
2 tablespoons of extra vierge olive oil
150 gram of spelt meal
150 gram of flour
7-9 gram of dried yeast
3 cloves of garlic minced
150 millilitre water

Kitchentools
an oven
a food processor
baking paper
a bowl or 2
a wooden spoon

How to begin………
First we are going to make the bottom, so take a bowl. Poor into the bowl the flour and spelt meal, mix well with a wooden spoon, also poor in the dried yeast and mix again, after you put in the olive oil and mix again. Time to put the garlic in and also very slowly, while stirring, the 150 millilitre of water. There must be now a nice soft dough! When it’s to dry poor in some more water, if it’s too wet some more meal or flour. Leave the dough in the bowl and set aside for 30 minutes.
Time to prepare the topping, wash and cut all the ingredients! The pumpkin is going to be in the oven for 25 minutes at 200 degrees celsius, but before he goes into the oven you will sprinkle the pumpkin with oil (I think like 2 tablespoons, sorry I didn’t count the spoons) some pepper and maybe salt if you like. Just wait till the pumpkin is ready…

TICTAC TICTAC…………PLING

Time to get the pumpkin out of the oven the half of the pumpkin you put into the food processor together with the balsamic vinegar and 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil (and maybe some pepper) and you make purée of it. This you will put on the dough. So get the dough sprinkle the table with some flour, make a square of the bottom the same size as you oven plate (maybe 2-3 mm thick). On top you put the purée! Time to get your children so they can decorate the pizza (of do it your own), with slices of pumpkin, mushrooms, olives, some rosemary, pine nuts and leek. Sprinkle some olive oil on top and….yes lets put the pizza into the oven.pizza deco

You put the pizza in the oven like 14-15 minutes on 200-220 degrees Celsius. You can see if the bottom is like a real pizza bottom a little hard but not too hard, the pizza will be ready!
Clean the table, put the candles on some great music and poor in the white wine. Enjoy the pizza when it’s warm! And eat with the hands……….

getting addicted to chutneys…..green tomato chutney

It’s so strange a couple of years ago I tasted some chutney, but I really didn’t like. But now I really love chutney, so it’s true they say that taste will change every couple of years. So I made special for the potluck hold in eco-village in the place Bergen some chutney with green tomatoes. Finally we didn’t stay long at the festival and missed the potluck, it was rainy and the workshop we were taking wasn’t the workshop I expected. The area is very huge and big and i am curious how it will be when it is finished, how it looks like. They are really at the beginning of making a eco-village.
Anyway now I ate the chutney at my evening dinner, a good solution!
I took the recipe from internet but took a little twist on it…thanks girls/guys

Ingredients for 2 jars of delicious green tomato chutney
600 gram of green tomatoes, washed an cut in 4 or more tiny piecesingr green tomato chutney
100 millilitre of balsamic vinegar
60 millilitre of rice vinegar/ or apple vinegar
1 red chilli pepper cut in really tin slices, seeds removed
2 cloves of garlic minced

90-100 gram of sucanat sugar
1/2 of a red onion cut in tny squares or strings

Kitchentools
a sauce pan
2 jars, cleaned very well in boiling water for 2-3 minutes

How to make this lovely chutney…..
Get both of the vinegars and poor them into the saucepan, heat the vinegar very slowly and poor in, while stirring, the sucanat sugar. When the sugar is dissolved throw in all the other ingredients and stir well, bring the mixture to a boil. Lets simmer this mixture for about 30 minutes, put the lid on the pan. Stir 1-2 times in the 30 minute time…
When the alarm goes and the 30 minutes are over take off the lid and stir the mixture again, let stand for like 30 minutes more. The mixture is going to be thicker that’s the goal. When you stir with the wooden spoon and you see on the bottom its getting like syrup….it’s ready!.
