Pumpkin cider cream with arugula and hazelnuts: light recipe ideal for dinner
I confess that I consume pumpkin regularly throughout the year, thanks to the fact that my father achieves a great harvest that lasts for months, and I like to prepare it outside the colder months as well. This recipe for Pumpkin Cream Cider with Arugula and Hazelnuts is one of my favorites.
Apple and pumpkin combine very well in sweet and savory dishes, so using a part of cider to cook the vegetable can only give good results. The bitterness of the arugula and the crunchiness of the hazelnuts add a delicious contrast of flavors and textures.

Remove the bay leaf and blend with a mixer, adjusting the liquid level to taste. Correct the salt and give another hit of black pepper. Peel some hazelnuts, toast lightly in an ungreased pan and chop coarsely.
