For one serve you need:
- 1 wedge of pumpkin, cca 3-inch wide
- 2 ripe really sweet kiwi fruit
- 1/2 green apple, sliced
- 1 teaspoon candied orange peel
- 1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
- Bake the wedge of pumpkin in its skin for about 55 minutes in the oven, at 150 C.
- Check, and when it is tender enough and almost mushy, put in the oven the slices of green apple on a tray, then bake together for another 5 minutes or so. The flesh of the pumpkin should be really mushy, well broiled on the margins.
- Take the pumpkin and the slices of apple out of the oven and let them to cool.
- With a table spoon, scrape out crescent-shaped scoops of pumpkin flesh. Arrange them on a large flat plate, then add the baked slices of apple to the design. I use either a square or a round shiny white plate, but a blue one would be just as nice.
- Slice one kiwi fruit longitudinally, to obtain leaf-shaped pieces, and the other one transversely, to obtain round pieces. Play them into the design on the plate, according to your own inspiration. You can create the idea of a sunflower without necessarily sticking to a flowery design.
- Sieve over the cinnamon powder (preferably Ceylon cinnamon).
- As final strokes, I place candied orange peel on each green element of the picture on the plate.
