Pumpkins are barely visible most of the year, and then October comes around, and they are everywhere. An estimated 15 million pumpkins are grown in the UK each year, with over half being used only for carving. But why not make use of this delicious superfood, packed full of nutrients and goodies, not goolies. Discover three delectable recipes for pumpkin by our partners Miele and Neff, perfect for those with a sweet tooth or a savoury palette.
Pumpkin is great any time of year, but it’s definitely a flavour we associate with Autumn and of course, Halloween. Whilst there are loads of pumpkin recipes you can make for dinner, this recipe for pumpkin cookies will really give your guests pump-kin to talk about.

Pumpkin (winter squash) is a delicious and comforting staple as our evenings get darker and the temperature starts to drop outside. Pumpkin has all summer to grow, and it stores very well, making it a great autumn and winter vegetable. Pumpkin is great in just about everything from soups, stews, and pasta dishes but in this stuffed mini pumpkin recipe it takes centre stage, creating a feast for the eyes and the tastebuds.
Stuffed Mini Pumpkins Ingredients
Toss the butternut squash with the onion, oil and cumin seeds and roast in an oven 200°C /fan until tender – approximately 20-30 minutes.
Whilst this is in the oven, fill an Unperforated steam cooking container with puy lentils and pour over enough boiling water to cover the surface of the lentils by 1cm above. Place in the Steam Oven for 25 minutes at 100°C, uncovered.
Cut off the top and hollow out the munchkin pumpkin to allow space for the filling.
Mix the cooked lentils, butternut squash, onion, cumin seeds, feta cheese and coriander, and then add the egg—season well with salt and pepper.
Spoon the mix into the munchkin pumpkin until full. Place the top back on the munchkin and place it onto a baking tray.
Best cooked in a combination steam oven, on combi mode, 200°C, 100% moisture, for 25- 30minutes. Once cooked, garnish with coriander and serve.
