It’s fall, which means it’s pumpkin time! I like pumpkins, and especially like them when they are paired with savory pairings. Something sweet (like sweet potatoes) go really well with something slightly sweet and savory, like onions. As such, I know that onions and pumpkins are a good match. (Also, we made a pumpkin and caramelized onion cous cous dish for Rosh Hashana some time back – more on that later!)
Ingredients (serves 4-6)
- a 1.5 pound pie pumpkin, remove skin and seeds, and cube
- 1 white onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil
- 2 tablespoons water
In a frying pan, add oil and chopped onions in a pan. Turn the heat to medium and stir continuously.
After 30 to 40 minutes, the onions will be nicely browned and caramelized. Add brown sugar.
Add cubed pumpkin pieces and water to the pan, and fry in the pan until the pumpkin is cooked, about 10 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
