Recipe overleaf

producer, is in Lincolnshire, growing 2m

pumpkins every year.

Just 80g of pumpkin counts as 1

of your 5 a day. It's a fruit - not a veg -

because it contains seeds. However,

it has a similar nutritional profile to

vegetables. Pumpkin is high in potassium

and contains several antioxidants,

including alpha-carotene and betacarotene,

which may protect your cells.

It's also completely stuffed with vitamins

A, C B2 and E.

Quick fixes

1. Pumpkin puree: Great added

to cakes, pancakes and pies, make

pumpkin puree easily by steaming cubed

flesh until soft, then mash.

2. Pumpkin stock: A rather unfortunate

term, the 'guts' - i.e. the stringy bits -

make a delicious stock, which you can

use in all manner of dishes. Simply add

with any veg leftovers you have - onion

and leek scraps, garlic, and carrot tops

work best - with a little olive oil, add

enough water to cover and boil and

simmer before straining.

3. Pumpkin soup: All you need

alongside your pumpkin is onion, garlic

and stock. For a little indulgence and

extra creaminess, add milk or a touch of

butter. Give it a kick with some ginger.

4. Save the seeds: Pumpkin seeds are

incredibly nutritious. Clean your saved

seeds and boil in salted water for 5-10

minutes, then drain and dry on a kitchen

towel. Toss with a little oil and season,

then spread across a baking sheet before

roasting at 180C for about 10 minutes.

Save time!

If you're not using your pumpkin for

carving and don't want any wastage,

here's an easy way to source the flesh

and seeds. Pop the whole pumpkin on

some baking paper on a baking tray and

bake for around 45 minutes at around

140 degrees. Then remove the pumpkin

and allow to cool. You can then easily

peel away the skin and chop to use as

you wish!
