Ingredients

  • 1 kg pumpkin
  • 1 recipe Kiwi Mince and Beans

Method

1. Preheat oven to 160°C (fan bake). Remove the seeds from the pumpkin and cut into pieces (the size of the pieces will affect the cooking time). Line a roasting dish with baking paper. Place pumpkin into a roasting dish skin side up. Pour over a little oil. Roast for 30-40 minutes until pumpkin is tender. Set aside to cool. This will make removing the skin easier.

2. While the pumpkin is roasting prepare the Kiwi Mince & Beans recipe.

3. To assemble:
Increase oven temperature to 180°C (fan bake). Remove skin from the cooked pumpkin and place in a bowl. Mash with a fork until smooth. Season with freshly ground pepper (and a little salt if you like). Spoon the mince and beans into individual oven proof dishes or use one larger dish. Top with the mashed pumpkin. Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes until hot. Serve with your favourite vegetables on the side.

Tips

We used crown pumpkin but any variety will work.

Replace the roasted pumpkin mash with creamy mashed potato or kumara.

We never had to print 2 pages before, why now?

Hi Mike, thanks for your comment. This recipe is unique as it uses a 'Base recipe' to create this recipe and other variations. We have updated the PDF which is related to this Cottage Pie recipe so when you print it you will get the base recipe as well as the Cottage Pie with Roasted Pumpkin Mash. I'm afraid we are unable to update the 'Print recipe' function as this is limited to the recipe on screen. We hope this helps. Regards the Food in a Minute Team

No good having the recipe spread over several pages. When you click on print recipe, there is no mention there of the pumpkin topping, so have to come back to the first page to find it.

This dish is absolutely delicious, and so easy to make. It has a really rich and hearty flavour, and the pumpkin mash makes it a healthier option. I substituted Watties Mild Chilli Beans to reduce the sugar content, and added a couple of tablespoons of tomato paste. I will be making this all winter!

I am unable to find the Kiwi Mince and beans receipe by clicking on the ingredients (doesn't go anywhere) or the #2 in the method. The latter takes me to a blank page saying the URL is not available ?
