It’s just gone 7.30am in the UK, and as we have a busy day ahead I’m typing up this #FoodWasteFriday post in my PJ’s.
We still haven’t carved our pumpkins at Chez Wright.
That’s on the list for a little later.
We have 2 large and 4 small!
It’s important, for me, to ensure we use up the pumpkin flesh.
So, scouring the internet I found 3 recipes for starter, main and dessert.
Although not counting calories, I like the look of this Weight Watchers soup. It looks super simple!
(I’m a fan of WW recipes – and still have my recipe book from 2002 when I lost 24 lbs)
Moving onto the main course, if I had to choose it would be curry every time. This recipe from BBC Good Food looks A-Mazing! I know pumpkin and chickpeas work well, as I’ve made a similar curry before.
Finally, dessert. It has to be cake! I’m going to adapt this recipe to rustle up a couple of tray bakes. Will then square and freeze if it doesn’t get eaten up. Who am I kidding?
(I’ll be updating on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter as the recipes get tested out)
We do have other Jack’o’Lanterns in the house, but they don’t pose any risk of food waste!
Oh and a coffin, made of icing, of course! Ready and waiting for trick and treaters.
Do you have any super suggestions on what to make with pumpkin?
Happy (No Waste Tastes Great) Halloween!
