Instead of decorating for the seasons I cook for the seasons. And it being fall there are tons of pumpkins everywhere! We found a great pumpkin at HEB, our grocery store, for about $4 and I'm all ready to cut it up and start cooking!
First on the list is this savory Pumpkin Tart!
Pumpkin Tart with Goat Cheese and Sage
4 cups cubed pumpkin
3 tablespoons dried sage
1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
1 sheet puff pastry, or your own crust
Salt and Pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the pumpkin by cutting off the peel and the inside layer of pulp. The cubes should be about half an inch by half an inch. Spread the cubes out on a baking sheet and drizzle with 2 tablespoons EVOO, salt and pepper. Bake for 15 minutes, stir, and bake for another 15 minutes or until just after the pieces are soft and you can easily slide a fork tall the way through them. You want to make sure to take them out before they get mushy. If you are pressed for time you can prepare the pumpkin a few hours or even the night before.
