Recipe of the month - Pumpkin edition!

In honour of Halloween the recipe of this month focuses around Pumpkins. During the spooky season, it is estimated that over 50% of pumpkins are wasted! In order to be more sustainable, here is a simple recipe to use those carving pumpkins in many different ways!!

  1. Use a vegetable peeler or knife to peel the hard outer skin of the pumpkin

  2. Dice the pumpkin into cubes 2-3 cm in length

  3. Peel and dice an equal amount of onions in the same size ( you can use any kind of onion but we recommend red onions for the best result

  4. Peel one clove of garlic

  5. Place the pumpkin onion and garlic in an oven pan and toss with oil, salt, pepper, honey and a chilli powder of your choice

  6. Note, you can also do this in a pan on the stove

  7. You can also change the honey for sugar or any sweet syrup of your choice (eg, maple syrup)

  8. Roast the vegetables in a 200 degree oven till the pumpkin is soft and can be split with a spoon

  9. Take out of the oven and cool it enough to handle

  10. Now using a food processor, immersion blender, chopper, or potato masher, blitz everything into a puree!

  11. You can add cream cheese and other flavourings if you wish at this stage!

  12. Voila

You now have a sauce that can be very versatile !

You can use it as is for a puree, throw some pasta through it for a pumpkin pasta, or

simmer it down with some stock for a pumpkin soup!

I hope you have fun making this! If you do please share your creations with us using the hashtag
