Maren’s culinary time is all about summer. The amiable vegetarian and passionate animal-lover loves the range of diversity from the garden. From a sporting point of view, that’s not such a bad thing… It means there are fewer distractions during training in winter ;) Maren took a very short detour to share this Kornspitz with us. Luckily it’s quick to make, and even quicker to eat!
For the spread, use a tablespoon to scoop the ripe avocado flesh from the peel. Use a fork to mash the avocado. If you feel it is still too coarse for your liking, you can also use a stick blender. Season with a bit of lime juice and salt and the avocado crème is ready.
Peel the pumpkin and cut it into even cubes. Drizzle a little olive oil onto the cubes and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake for about 30 minutes at 130°C. The cubes should roast nicely, without darkening, and they should still have a firm bite. Keep tasting until you are satisfied with the result.
In the meantime, fry the Halloumi on both sides in a little olive oil, until golden-brown. Drain off any excess oil.
Spread the avocado crème onto the Kornspitz, add alternate cubes of pumpkin and halloumi on top, finish with a few leaves of arugula and a couple of splashes of lime. The avocado and Halloumi deliver a full, creamy taste, while the pumpkin has an earthy sweetness, which contrasts well with the somewhat tart flavours of the arugula and lime. The overall combination results in a wonderfully balanced and harmonious snack.
Maren was delighted, the Kornspitz was gone, and we were extremely satisfied.
