RECIPE BACKSTORY
i love this recipe as it is easy to prepare and cook and tastes delicous. It is also lower fat and relatively healthy. I regularly freeze excess pumpkin ready prepared so i can just make this quickly. I have overcooked the pumpkin slightly in the picture. This doesn't actually make it less delicious. Red curry paste works just as well. This is adapted from a weight watchers recipe from the book "The time to eat" by Sian Davies. I am not sure if this book is in print still, however has some delicous recipes in it.
