Oh pumpkin, oh pumpkin, how I love you. You're versatile, you're delicious, and you're...CHEAP.
I was going to do my usual half -a-pumpkin purchase when I decided to branch out and buy a whole pumpkin. I know, big deal right? - A whole pumpkin. This baby was a whopping $2.49. Not as cheap as the Vege Markets, but still pretty cheap huh?
This pumpky got me pondering. Just how many things could one make with a whole pumpkin? I thought I'd put it to the test and keep you posted in the process.
I started tonight by making this: which used about 1/8th of the pumpkin.
I know, I know, mashed pumpkin reminds me of baby food too. BUT, it was scrummy. Especially with the additional dollop of maple syrup added in the end...
So there we have it. About 1/8th of my pumpkin gone.
That's still a lot of pumpkin left to create some more pumpkin deliciousness. Yusss.
p.s. I think this must be the first savoury meal I have posted on my blog. Fancy that?
