Cooking cottage cheese casseroles with pumpkin in a slow cooker:
Step 1: Prepare the pumpkin.
Cut the pulp of a pumpkin into medium-sized cubes.
In a saucepan, warm the milk and pour the chopped pumpkin and ground cinnamon into it. Stir everything and simmer until the slices of the vegetable are softer. But do not digest, pumpkin should not fall apart.
Attention: pumpkin in milk can be cooked in a slow cooker, in the mode "porridge".
After cooking, remove the pumpkin in milk from the heat and cool everything together to room temperature.
Step 2: Cook the curd mass.
Fill the cottage cheese in a blender bowl, add honey, granulated sugar to it, beat the chicken egg, pour the semolina and pour the sour cream. Beat everything with a blender, turning the curd mass into a homogeneous consistency.
Add the boiled pumpkin pieces to the cottage cheese along with the milk in which it was boiled, and mix thoroughly, but carefully. Vegetable slices should remain whole.
Step 3: Bake a cottage cheese casserole with pumpkin in a slow cooker.
To prevent the casserole from sticking, the multicooker bowl must be greased with butter or vegetable oil, sprinkled with semolina, or simply covered with baking parchment.
Pour the curd with pumpkin into the multicooker. Flatten the top. Close the appliance lid, select the mode "bakery products" and set the timer to 40 minutes.
When the cottage cheese casserole with pumpkin is ready, open the multicooker lid and let its contents cool. And only after the casserole can be carefully removed, turned upside down (this is not necessary, just the top is too pale) and serve.
Step 4: Serve the cottage cheese casserole with pumpkin in a slow cooker.
Pumpkin cottage cheese casserole, cooked in a slow cooker, turns out to be satisfying, nutritious and very tasty. Garnish with icing sugar and serve for breakfast or afternoon tea.
