I hope you enjoyed Halloween. Did you carve a pumpkin? I always find pumpkin carving quite difficult, so am impressed with some of the amazing designs that I see online. I understand a stencil is the key, however I don’t think I would have the patience. But at least the boys were happy with my basic carving.
And of course I didn’t want to waste the pumpkin flesh. Instead I used it in a stir-fry.
Pumpkin and Kale stir-fry
Ingredients (serves 2)
1 spring onion
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp mixed herbs
salt and pepper to season
Dice the pumpkin and chop the spring onion.
Shred the kale and grate the potato.
Heat the oil in a wok over a moderate heat.
Add the pumpkin and onion.
Stir in the grated potato.
Stir in the kale.
Add the macadamias.
Add herbs and season with salt and pepper.
Continue to stir-fry for about 10-15 minutes.
Serve and enjoy.
