SPOOKY STUFFED PUMPKIN WITH BLOODY BEETROOT INFUSED SPICY RICE…

 

A spooky center-piece for any healthy eater’s Halloween banquet. We created this devilishly red, spicy and zesty flavoured brown basmati rice encased in a spiced, whole roasted pumpkin vessel.  Get stuffed this Halloween… and here’s how:

 

What you’ll need:

  • One medium sized pumpkin
  • 100g brown basmati rice
  • 2 medium red onions
  • 2 beetroot (fresh)
  • 1 heaped teaspoon The Gym Chef Winter Spice
  • 2 heaped teaspoon The Gym Chef Cajun seasoning
  • ½  tsp of The Gym Chef Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1  tsp of The Gym Chef Black Pepper Salt
  • 1 pomegranate (whole)
  • 1 lemon (whole)
  • Rapeseed oil (cold press)

Method:

  • Slice the top off your pumpkin,
  • Scoop out the guts
  • Smother with a little rapeseed oil,
  • Rub generously with the Winter Spice aromatic seasoning,
  • Add a sprinkling of salt if desired,
  • Bake for 45 mins in the center of the oven at 190 degrees C.
  • Wash and drain the rice,
  • Boil for 20 mins at a medium/high heat.

Prep the veg:

  • Peel and slice the onions,
  • Peel and thinly slice the beetroot,
  • Add a third of the beetroot to the rice to help naturally change it’s colour to a bloody red,
  • Cut the pomegranate in half, hold over a bowl and bash repeatedly to release the juicy seeds.

Now for the flavour:

  • Add two tablespoons of rapeseed oil to a wok,
  • Fry the onions and add the beetroot and cook until soft (leaving some for a garnish later on),
  • Add the seasoning and stir,
  • Mix in the rice and stir well,
  • Squeeze in the lemons,
  • Turn the heat off and mix in half of the pomegranate seeds,
  • Grab the pumpkin and stuff with the rice mix,
  • Garnish as ghoulishly as possible with the remaining beetroot, and pomegranate.

Serve as a great devilish vegan dish or as a side with your choice of protein.

Optional - Fight off vampires with our Garlic and Herb seasoning.
