What to do with Pumpkin Leftovers

It's Halloween season, and your carved pumpkins are sat on your doorstep, waiting to be chucked out. Sound familiar?  According to the Pumpkin Rescue campaign, the UK wastes 18 000 tonnes of pumpkin every Halloween, which is why I have put together a few ideas for what you can do with your pumpkin leftovers.

1) Pumpkin Soup
This is a tasty comfort meal that is so easy to whip up when time is short. Click here for the steps!

2) Pumpkin Pie
An American favourite, this pumpkin pie recipe uses 750g of your carved creation.

3) Chocolate and Pumpkin Loaf
This is a delicious combination, perfect for cosy autumnal evenings! Click here for Jamie Oliver's recipe.

4) Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
A great healthy snack which is so easy to make. Simply sprinkle a layer of pumpkin seeds with salt and pepper and drizzle over a little olive oil. Bake for 7-10 minutes at 190 degrees C until light brown.

5) Pumpkin Curry
A real hearty meal to share with your friends. Check out this recipe to use up one whole pumpkin!
