Autumn Panzanella


I’ve never made panzanella … and we can guess it, you say! I do not think it needs particular skills, perhaps crumbling the bread a bit would have been enough … anyway, even if it came out a bit dry, the flavours blended very well in mouth ๐Ÿ˜‰ And then, in these warm days, is perfect for those who don’t want soups and steaming dishes!

60-70 gr of bread per person (mine was with the seeds, very good!)
1 piece of pumpkin
tender leaves of the “cavolo nero”, steamed
dried sage at will
Herbes de Provence at will
dried chilli
extra virgin olive oil

Cut the bread into chunks, dip it in water and forget it there. Meanwhile, cut the pumpkin into cubes and cook it with a little olive oil in a frying pan, over a high heat and without lid. When it starts getting tender, add chili, crumbled sage, herbs of Provence and the leaves of cavolo nero, cut into thin strips. Add salt and cook over a low heat until the pumpkin is completely done (but not reduced to a pulp). Now get the bread, squeeze it and break it in a bowl; add the cooked vegetables and the mushrooms you have sliced in the meantime. Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, stir and enjoy! I also thought about adding slices of raw red onion for those who like it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sorry for the photos, but there was too much sun … I also want to show you the necklace-hanger I made this summer, which I’m very proud of! I obtained it starting only from a piece of wood found on the beach… the rest is all my work ๐Ÿ˜€ If anyone is interested in making a similar one, please feel free to contact me to have a better description of it… it’s very easy! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here it is:

Here you see the “ladybirds” and nails I pinned:

And finally, some of my necklaces, most of which made by me:

    Your panzanella “reloaded” seems quite interesting. I love your photos, as usual!
    And your necklace hanger is really pretty… as well as your homemade neclaces!
