Stuffed munchkin pumpkins

Munchkin pumpkins recipe

How not to love something that is called munchkin pumpkin ? πŸ™‚
It is very healthy but if you bake it,it tastes just like french fries!
Here’s an idea for easy to make and healthy munchkin pumpkin lunch.

Shopping list:

4 Munchkin pumpkins
olive oil

for stuffing:
chilli (I’ve used: already chopped stir and fry salsa)
few mushrooms
rice (I’ve used: ready in 2 minutes, flavoured Uncle Ben’s rice )

Slice off tops from your munchkin pumpkins (but don’t throw them away) and scoop out the seeds.Sprinkle pumpkins with salt and brush them inside and out (including the sliced off tops) with olive oil. Place pumpkins (cut side up) and tops (cut side down) onto previously brushed with olive oil baking tray and roast at 200C for around 25 minutes (till tender).

You need to keep anΒ  eye on your pumpkins because it’s easy to overcook them. Cooking time depends on your oven type. For fan asisted ovens it could be less ten 25 minutes.

Throw previously washed and chopped mushrooms,onion and chilli onto the pan, sprinkle them with olive oil and fry till tender. To cook rice, follow instructions on the packaging. You can use all kinds of rice and couscous to do the stuffing.

Mix cooked rice and pan content together and put it into the pumpkins cavities. Place pumpkins “lids”on top and voilΓ  ! πŸ™‚
It’s munchin time! Enjoy πŸ™‚
