We don't celebrate Hallowe'en here in Oz ... but here are some fun things to do with pumpkin

Pumpkin is delicious. Here is Australia we mostly consume it as a vegetable (i.e. in savoury dishes) though it is technically a fruit, however I've heard rumours that in North America pumpkins are more commonly eaten in desserts such as pumpkin pie.

Anyway ... maybe you've carved a Hallowe'en pumpkin (or three) and are wondering what to do with the pulp? Here are some ideas. You're welcome!

Pumpkin, feta, pine nut and rocket salad
Pumpkin, coriander and chilli scones (and good old pumpkin scones)
Hearty vegetable soup
Japanese chestnut pumpkin simmered in sake
Pumpkin soup with drizzled coriander pesto
Pumpkin bread
