Here again the pumpkin! In a simple and comforting main dish!
A simple pureed-soup served with a fanciful marinated tofu. The perfect solution for a hot dinner, that satiate and nourish without weight down. My pumpkin was particularly sweet and I blended it a long, until it get very soft. The contrast with the sour of the tofu was wonderful!
