I wanted to get this recipe out ahead of Halloween so you have plenty of time to enjoy it!
I just adore this pie with its nutty, crunchy base and creamy filling. It is just such a delight to dig into.
Pumpkin is in season now and is just great to cook with. It’s a great source of carotenoid antioxidants which act as an anti-inflammatory . Pumpkin is an amazing veg to include in your diet- its is loaded with fibre meaning it will leave you satisfied and full without any uncomfortable bloat…
Ready in 75 minutes
Good For Christmas
For the crust
For the filling
To make the filling you will need 750g of cooked pumpkin, so you will need to either roast inch chunks it in coconut oil at 200C for 30 minutes until cooked through or steam/boil inch chunks for 20 minutes until cooked through. The difference? Roasting creates a slightly more caramel texture, whereas steaming is quicker. Make sure you cut off the skin.
You can also buy it in cans, I have seen it in Wholefoods.
