Stage 1 - 35 min.

Prepare 1 potimarron (Japanese chestnut pumpkin), as indicated here.

Cut each section into small pieces of about the same size (for even cooking), salt and add enough water to come about halfway up the potimarron.

Stage 2 - 1 min.

Stage 3 - 10 min.

...for 10 minutes maximum, until potimarron pieces are soft (check with the point of a knife, which should go in easily).

Stage 4 - 5 min.

Drain off as much water as possible by tipping up the pan, then blend thoroughly.

If you have problems blending puree because it is too thick, add a little milk.

Stage 5 - 1 min.

Check seasoning, that's it: your puree is ready.

For immediate use, I suggest you add a little cream, a little butter and pepper.

Stage 6 - 20 min.

If you want to do as chefs do, pass your puree through a sieve.

It will then be perfectly smooth and creamy.
Remarks
Of course, if you don't have potimarron you can do the same thing with normal pumpkin but the flavour is not so good.
Keeping
Several days in the fridge, in a closed jar.

Almond tuiles
These delicious little biscuits ("tiles" in French) get their crunch and lightness from the use of flaked almonds rather than ground. It is not difficult to succeed, you just need to work fast after taking them out of the oven.
