Serves 2


1.5 cups butternut pumpkin, peeled and cubed (a good Kent or Jap works well also)

1 apple, peeled and cored

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 cup water

1 cup wild or organic blueberries

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1/4 cup currents, raisin or sultanas (reduce quantity for diabetic or weight loss diets)


Place the pumpkin in water with the chopped apple, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes until tender. Add water if you need to. Drain off all water and mash together so it is chunky.

In a saucepan heat the blueberries, raisins and walnuts until warm.

Serve on top of the pumpkin and apple mash.
