SAVORY CAPPUCCINO with pumpkin and leek

March 06, 2024

It is said that it was a Capuchin friar who gave the name to the drink that for many of us represents a real morning ritual. Perhaps because, after asking for some milk to sweeten the overly intense taste of his coffee, he noticed that the color of the "new" blend was indeed similar to that of his tunic. When we think of Cappuccino, we imagine it in a moment of relaxation, for example in the early hours of Sunday, paired with a croissant or our favorite cake. Savory Cappuccino will be the ideal company for an equally relaxing moment, but it will surprise you with new colors and an irresistible taste: that of your favorite vegetable soup.

Tomato, peas, carrots, zucchini, and fennel... it is possible to make it with any flavor, but for our first Savory Cappuccino, we chose the Pumpkin and Leek Soup. Its warm color is reminiscent of the early days of autumn, but it also pairs perfectly with festive tables. Yes, because this recipe is as simple as it is spectacular: a treat for the eyes and the palate. It contains no caffeine, so it won't keep you awake all night, but it will still make you dream.


Preparation time: 10 minutes

 2 people


1 jar of Pumpkin and Leek Soup Emilia Food Love
5.07 fl. oz - 150 ml fresh whole milk
5-6 turmeric crackers with poppy seeds
2 tufts of rosemary
Extra virgin olive oil
Black pepper in grains


  1. In a saucepan, heat the soup well. Meanwhile, heat the milk over medium heat. When it's warm, add a pinch of salt and then whip it with a milk frother until you obtain a nice and dense foam.
  2. Pour the soup into two cups, just like you would pour coffee for a cappuccino. Drizzle with olive oil and top it off with the milk foam on the surface.
  3. Garnish both cups with a tuft of rosemary, sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and add the crunchy part: a "crumble" made by crumbling crackers, just before serving.

Some dishes are named after the tool needed to make them: this is the case of the protagonist of our new recipe which owes its creation and identity to the tambourine-shaped mold originally used to prepare it. Today we choose other methods of preparation, but we continue (and will always continue) to call it "timbale".

Pasta, rice, meat, fish, sweet or savory: every country, every family, every cooking enthusiast has its own version. Our idea is a simple, but with a great visual impact. The colorful and fresh Small Tagliatelle Timbales conquer the palate and catch the eye.
