pumpkin and harissa houmousYorkshire photographer and food writer Joan Ransley makes a fabulous panforte inspired by an Antonio Carluccio recipe. ‘It’s one of my favourite recipes, says Joan, and I love the combination of spices and flavours - coriander seeds, orange, nutmeg and cinnamon.’ Take a look at her website www.joanransley.co.uk for wonderful images and inspiration and click on our website HERE to find the full recipe.

The Devilled Egg is a fabulous online cookery school devoted to helping anyone master the art of home cooking. They’ve kindly shared some of their delicious recipes with us and we thought that this tasty Pumpkin and Harissa Houmous sounded the perfect accompaniment to nibbles and festive drinks. Why not try with butternut squash or sweet potato as an alternative – maybe with a little Steenbergs dukkah sprinkled on top?

Steenbergs Stuffed squashSteenbergs organic stuffing mixes are a really versatile way to create vegetarian meals, as well as providing the traditional stuffing to a turkey. They only contain herbs, spices, fruit and breadcrumbs and are an easy and convenient way to create a wholesome stuffing. For a ‘get ahead’ meat-free meal, why not make some tasty Cranberry & Apple stuffed Squash and pop them in the freezer to save time.
