Creamy Pumpkin and Walnuts

13/05/2013

 These are only ideas and all the measures/weights are an approximate. Something else to do with left over pumpkin.

2 cups pumpkin, peeled diced into cubes

2 tablespoons olive oil

200g feta, crumbled

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper

100g walnuts, toasted, finely chopped

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage or basil save a few extra leaves for garnish

 

Toss pumpkin in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add the salt and pepper and bake at 200c for 25 minutes or until tender.

Transfer cooked pumpkin mix to a large bowl, add the walnuts and salt and pepper; crush and mix lightly with a fork.

 

This is really delicious served with a creamy goat cheese or feta in olive oil topped with chopped sage.

Spread feta mixture on mini toasts and top with the creamy pumpkin and garnish with a sage or basil leaf.
