Wasabi pumpkin purée has this surprisingly addictive combo of sweet and spicy. Great side dish to impress the guests and do something more dynamic than mashed potatoes. Wasabi pumpkin purée is almost too simple to write down. The idea of mixing both together might sound odd to some… I was one of those sceptic at first. But if you dare, try it out! You’ll fall hard and probably want to make all your loved ones try ASAP. Yes, this kind of recipe!

A German’s Secret Ingredient Then, I met my husband, a guy from Munich, Germany. Also, it is a place where they do spectacular coleslaws or “kraut salad,” as they call it. They make a few variations, for…
