There are 45 different varieties of pumpkins and while the Jack O Lantern pumpkins are the most recognizable, pumpkins come in different colours, shapes and sizes. Look for the mini ones if you want to stuff and cook them whole.
I have used caramelized onion in this recipe and I recommend doing a batch and keeping in fridge as these are incredibly versatile. You could add to a quiche or pie or sandwiches. To do caramelized onion, slice 2 onions thinly, fry in a couple of tablespoons of oil on low heat for 20 – 25 minutes.
2 small pumpkin or winter squash
1 x 400g tin of red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
½ red pepper, finely diced
2 tablespoons of caramelized onion
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of tomato ketchup
