Pumpkin (112)      Question (20)     
With Halloween just around the corner, pumpkin carving is at an annual high, but what to do with all the innards? I don't want it all to go to waste. Can you guys provide me with some ideas? Feel free to post recipe link too.

I love just having it very simple, just roasted as a tasty side dish to a Sunday roast. If you're looking for some carving ideas, have a look at this link
You can toast the pumpkin seeds under the grill for a few minutes with a bit of salt. Here's my recipe - http://recipeyum.com.au/toasted-pumpkin-seeds/

The pulp, however, does not taste very nice, so I wouldn't recommend eating it.
Turn it into a lovely spicy pumpkin mash. Toast the pumpkin in the frying pan in butter or coconut oil along with garlic, pine nuts, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper. Mash it all up adding a bit of pure cream and sprinkle with flakes of toasted almond.
Spicy pumpkin and butternut squash soup for me. It's delicious and a great way to use up a lot of pumpkin!

Roast that sucker! Chop it into chunks, then roast with a sprinkling of your favourite herbs, a touch of salt, and a light sprinkling of balsamic vinegar.
Roast pumpkin is fantastic and so easy to do - once you've cut it all up of course!

For best results include some rosemary when roasting the pumpkin.
