The slightly colder weather and the cosiness of the fall season bring along the need of favourite comfort foods like this delicious stuffed pumpkin for example.
Some of you may recognise it as something more Christmassy-like to serve on the table, but I just couldn’t resist the variety of the beautiful pumpkins and squashes filling up the market stalls.
There’s a lot of options to go crazy with the filling, but knowing I have a sweet tooth it’s not a surprise I chose the sweet version. Plus, savoury anything is not something my brain links to when talking about comfort food.
Have you tried baked pumpkin seeds? They are delicious and very nutritious. Just wash them thoroughly, toss with some olive oil, salt and paprika, spread on a tray lined with baking paper, put on the bottom of the oven and bake along with the pumpkin. Keep an eye on them and when they start to golden, they’re ready.
