“Another Karen Martini recipe from her cookbook "cooking at home". She suggests serving this dish as a starter, or as an accompaniment to roast chicken, lamb or as a main meal with some rice and salad. I like to use jap or kent pumpkin. You can use other pumpkin of choice. You can toast pine nuts in a non-stick pan, using a dry pan- over medium heat. Keep the pine nuts moving until fragrant and toasted, remove from pan when done to stop them from burning”
