Tempo de preparo

2 hour(s)


4 servings


  • Pumpkin Pumpkin | 1 unit(s)
  • Salted cod | 200 g
  • Milk | 500 ml
  • Garlic Cloves | 6 unit(s)
  • Onion | 1 unit(s)
  • Bay leaves | 2 unit(s)
  • Thyme sprigs | 6 unit(s)
  • Rosemary sprigs | 2 unit(s)
  • Butter | 1 tablespoon
  • Wheat flour | 1 tablespoon
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil | 2 tablespoon
  • Salt |  to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper |  to taste
  • grated Gruyere cheese | 100 g
  • Black olives |  to taste
  • Coriander |  to taste
  • Coriander seeds | 15 unit(s)
  • Toast |  to taste
  • arugula |  to taste


  1. Cut the pumpkin in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Season with salt, place three cloves of garlic in each cavity, wrap with aluminum foil and bake in a medium/high oven for 1 hour.
  2. Forget the milk with the herbs and coriander seeds. When boiling, add the desalted cod. Turn off the heat, cover the pan and set aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Strain the cod cooking milk and set aside. In a small pan add the butter and flour, cook for 2/3 minutes until you have a light roux with an almondy aroma. Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly and cook for at least 5 minutes until it thickens to obtain a white sauce that is not too thick.
  4. Parade the cod, eliminating the rosemary and the bay leaf but keeping the coriander seeds and the thyme shapes. Add to white sauce. Also add the finely browned chopped onion, 6 pitted and chopped olives and chopped fresh coriander.
  5. Remove the pumpkin from the oven, unwrap and scrape the pulp with a fork or spoon, crushing the garlic cloves well, which should now be very soft.
  6. Transfer this pulp to the brandade, adjust the salt and pepper and fill the two pumpkin halves with this stuffing. Cover with the grated gruyere and bake in a very hot oven for 35 minutes or until browned.
  7. Serve with toast, some arugula leaves and some olives. Serves very well as a main dish also accompanied by rice and green salad. It's going to be nice for Christmas!
