Halloween party food - Pumpkin pots with oat pastry


Make the most of your pumpkin this Halloween and put the middle to good use once you've made a spooky lantern or two. These pumpkin pots with oat pastry are real winter warmers that make a great Halloween party starter.

Ingredients:
Pastry:

100g plain flour, sifted
Pinch of salt
100g Flahavan’s Irish Porridge Oats
50g butter, roughly diced
Ice cold water to bind

Filling:
500g prepared weight pumpkin flesh, cut into small chunks

How to make:
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

2. Combine pastry ingredients in a food processor and whiz until combined (or combine using finger tips in a large bowl). Divide into four and roll each to make pie lids. Place on a baking sheet and transfer to the fridge to rest.

3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok and fry the pumpkin for 5-6 minutes until starting to soften and char. Add the stock and simmer over a high heat until almost all the liquid has been absorbed. Stir through the cream, crème fraiche and spices and heat until almost boiling. Remove from the heat and stir through the pine nuts.

4. Spoon pumpkin mixture into four individual pie dishes. Carefully top each with a pastry lid.

5. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, until pastry is turning golden and cooked through.
