Pumpkin soup:

  • Cut the onion and ginger into small pieces and fry them with the oil in a high saucepan. If necessary, peel and core the pumpkin, cut into pieces and fry briefly as well.
  • Pour the vegetable stock and cook for about 1 hour until the vegetables are very soft.
  • Season with the spices to taste and puree finely with a hand blender. Add the coconut milk and season to taste.

Carpaccio and salad:

  • Wash the beetroot well, rub with oil and put in an ovenproof saucepan. Pour water into the pot so that it is about 2 cm high. Add bay leaves and pressed juniper berries and, with the lid closed, simmer in the oven at 180 degrees for about 1-2 hours, depending on the size of the beets.
  • Let the beetroot cool, peel and cut into thin slices with a knife, arrange on plates and drizzle with olive oil and a little rosemary.
  • Wash the lettuce, peel the oranges, remove the skin and cut into small pieces. Caramelize the walnuts in the pan with 2 tablespoons of honey.
  • Cut the soft goat cheese into approx. 1 cm thick slices and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle the cheese with honey and pour rosemary over it.
  • Arrange all ingredients on the beetroot carpaccio, season with salt and pepper and pour vinegar and walnut oil over it.
  • Let goat soft cheese gratin in the oven at 180 degrees for about 3 minutes. Danger! It can happen very quickly. Arrange the warm cheese on the salad and serve immediately.

Spelled walnut baguette:

  • Mix fresh yeast in crumbs in a bowl with lukewarm water until the yeast has dissolved.
  • Add flour and salt and mix together. Chop the walnuts and knead into the dough with rosemary. Let the dough rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes.

  • Brush the baguettes with a little water and bake at 200 ° C top / bottom heat for about 20-25 minutes.
