Pumpkin Puff

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Jen T

Something different to make with pumpkin. Goes well with grilled chops or sausages. This recipe was given to me by our next door neighbour Maewyn when I was about 10yrs old and learning to cook different foods:) I could always be found in her kitchen when not in ours:)

I made this last night, adding cheese and parsley, but unfortunately my husband and I both thought it was too bland. Since I have a lot of pumpkin to use up, I decided to make it again tonight, only this time I added chipotle pepper, cilantro, and a bit of honey, and we ended up really liking it that way. I might experiment with different additions in the future.
