It’s a great idea for taking full advantage of pumpkins when they’re on special, and the perfect way to use up some of the flesh of those big roasted pumpkins.
Why pumpkins? Well they’re a really good source of dietary fibre, potassium, magnesium, vitamin B6 and iron, as well as being rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, E and C. Winner!
