Sun recipe: Stuffed pumpkins with lentils

Discover this original recipe for lentil-stuffed pumpkins, tested and approved with the SunGlobe parabolic solar cooker and SunTubeXL cooking tube .

Recipe suggested by : Solliès Cheese – Parabolic solar oven, SunGlobe + SunTube XL cooking tube – Preparation time: 30 mn – Cooking time: 1h


  • Two small pumpkins
  • One onion, two garlic cloves
  • A cup of lentils
  • A handful of almonds and raisins
  • A bouillon cube, or homemade bouillon
  • One teaspoon cumin, one teaspoon cinnamon

Preparing the lentil-stuffed pumpkins

  • Place the minced onion and garlic, lentils, dried fruit, broth and two cups of water in a suitable pot. Add salt, pepper and spices to taste.
  • Simmer in the cooker of your choice (in this case, a dish oven) until the lentils are cooked through. I like them mashed, but you can keep them firmer!
  • Meanwhile, preheat the Suntube XXL. Cut the small pumpkins in half vertically, remove the seeds and season the flesh. You can use a knife to make crisscrosses in the flesh, so that the flavors can penetrate better.
  • Once the lentils are cooked, fill the hearts of the pumpkins and bake for 30 minutes. Don’t forget to oil the bottom of the tube, or use greaseproof paper… it’s hot!
To be enjoyed without moderation!
