Pumpkin Savoury Style Mash

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Rhiannon and Matt

This recipe was developed and tested by Consumer Science students studying Community Nutrition at RMIT University, Victoria, Australia. For a flavour change, you can add ½ teaspoon of honey at step 3, leaving out the tahini paste and curry powder. For a high-energy alternative, add 1 teaspoon of cream and 1 tablespoon of margarine or butter before blending. We made it as posted and thought it was yum. Nutty & sweet.

Got to agree with Lalaloula absolutely awesome between that pinch (o'kay maybe I used a smidgeon more) and the nuttiness of tahini it was the best pumpkin mash I have ever had (I also garnished with some toasted sesame seeds to accentuate that flavour). I served for 3 and used 400 grams of pumpkins and 2 heaped teaspoons of tahini past, about 1/4 teaspoon of a hot madrass curry powder, and about a tablespoon of butter (sorry does not make it vegan). Thank you Rhiannon&Matt.gauci, made for ZAAR Chef Alphabet Soup.
