Although it is quite a good autumn in Malaga, it is already cold (at least for me?) and warm dishes are craving, especially for us who are so cold. During this time it costs less to cook and make recipes a little more elaborate than in the summer, although in general we usually prepare simple recipes like the ones we share on the blog

I don’t remember my mother or grandmother using pumpkin in their recipes, but I love it and since I discovered it I use it a lot. Alberto’s mother, on the other hand, does use it and makes a delicious stew of chickpeas and pumpkin, in which this recipe is inspired. It is very similar but we have given it our personal touch.
