Abobora Refogada: Brazilian Pumpkin Hummus

What a bizarre little stew. My new roommate and I ate it for a few moments in silence, not quite sure what to make of it. Finally she suggested adding cumin and layering it on pita bread. Then it was quite good. Pumpkin hummus. Huh.

Recipe: Abobora Refogada
Serves 2

1 can pumpkin
2 Tbsp butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1 medium onion, minced
Lots of salt
Cumin (though it’s not authentic)

Mix everything together in a frying pan. Cook over medium heat until the butter melts, then over low until it is warmed through. Season with lots of salt, and eat on pita.
