Halloween is only a few weeks away so I thought I’d post a favourite Halloween recipe.


Halloween is only a few weeks away so I thought I’d post a favourite Halloween recipe.

We’ve all cooked or ate Pumpkin soup so I’ve looked for something different and found this recipe on fellow blogger Bron Marshall’s (http://bronmarshall.com) site “take a look it’s great”

  • ¼ cup of olive oil
  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped or sliced
  • 2 chorizo sausages, approximately 250 grams, sliced
  • 400 grams of pumpkin, peeled and diced
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 teaspoons of smoked paprika
  • 400 ml / grams of chopped peeled tomatoes, or passata
  • 1 cup of vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 to 6 cloves of garlic, crushed - to taste
  • freshly ground salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Heat a large cast iron or earthen ware casserole dish on the hob; add the olive oil, onion and chorizo and sauté until very fragrant and golden.

Add the pumpkin, potato cubes and smoked paprika and stir through to coat.

Continue to cook for a couple of minutes, and then just cover the vegetables with enough of the tomatoes and stock.

Stir through the bay leaf, garlic and some freshly ground pepper and salt.

Cover and place into the preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the pumpkin and potatoes are tender.

Remove the bay leaf, taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.

Serve along side some fluffy rice, couscous or simply a crusty baguette.

I’ve tried it and it’s great! Do you have any Halloween Recipes you want to share?
