Ingredients

  • 1.5kg of pumpkins flesh ( about 1 medium to large ish pumpkin)

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°c.
  2. Chop the pumpkin up into rough quarters, keeping the seeds to one side.
  3. Lay the quarters onto baking trays and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Grind up the chilli flakes and coriander seeds with a little salt in a pestle and mortar, then sprinkle over the pumpkin.
  5. Into the oven to roast for about an hour, or until the pumpkin is soft and starting to caramelise around the edges.
  6. Whilst the pumpkin is roasting, chop the onion, garlic, carrot and celery and cook in a tablespoon of oil for about 15 minutes, until soft.
  7. Clean the seeds in water and pat dry before frying in a teaspoon of oil until they start to pop.
