Pumpkin and Cheese Patties

You can tell we’re heading towards the southern hemisphere Halloween – we have pumpkins in such abundance that you can see where the idea of cutting faces in them came from!  But still, there are a lot of ways to make use of a glut of pumpkins.  Most foods with that bright orange colour are super-good-for-you – loaded with  beta -carotenes that help protect against a whole range of chronic diseases.  Pumpkins are also a good source of fibre and lots of vitamins and minerals.

This recipe is simple, fast, cheap, tasty, healthy, and best not over-elaborated.

The recipe:

Mix two parts of grated *raw* pumpkin with one part grated low fat tasty cheese.  Mix in an egg and a dessertspoon of plain wholemeal flour for every couple of cupfuls of mixture. Add salt and pepper and fry spoonfuls of the mixture in olive oil until crisp and golden.

    Is the pumpkin raw or cooked before you grate it? Enquiring minds want to know!

    Hi Rebekka – raw – good point!
