Customer reviews

For us butternut squash is a gourmet item, and those from real foods are the cream of the crop. No two real foods squash ever taste the same - slight variations in sweetness, colour and texture - and they are all simply delicious.
I roast then in a light coating of organic olive oil with organic sunflower seeds scattered on the bottom of the roasting tin, and serve with organic polenta (also roasted separately in organic olive oil with a slice of organic salted butter), lightly boiled broccoli and cubes of feta cheese. This is a regular on our supper menu and was our Christmas dinner last year!

Roasted butternut squash and onion soup is one of the nicest signs of approaching winter that I can think of.

Gluten Free Chestnut Pastry Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Summary: Pumpkin Pie is the perfect pudding to serve at Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas. And just because you or your loved one is gluten free doesn't mean you can't have this most celebrated American dessert. This easy recipe shows you how to make your own gluten-free sweet shortcrust pastry and pumpkin puree, to make perhaps the best pumpkin pie in the world. Personally, I can't say what I like the most : the amazingly crumbly nutty sweet pastry or the spicy and mellow pumpkin pudding. Both. Be generous with the spices, and as always when making gluten-free pastry, be as gentle as possible while rolling and handling it, as it is very delicate. I like to use this combination of rice, maize and chestnut flours for my gluten-free pastry, but you could use a different combination of gluten-free flours. The chestnut adds a touch of Autumn deliciousness, and goes wonderfully well with the cinnamon.
