  • 1 small, orange fleshed pumpkin
  • 3 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 200g Castello Tickler Cheddar
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Handful of chives
  • Caramelised onions
  • Parsley


1 Carefully slice the top off a small pumpkin and scoop out the stringy bits along with the seeds, leaving the flesh. Season the inside and add a good splash of olive oil.

2 Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for around an hour.

3 Meanwhile, make your sweet potato mash. Gently fry some garlic in a large saucepan with a little olive oil. Peel and cut around three sweet potatoes and add to the pan, then add boiling water and simmer until soft. Then drain.

4 Grate around 200g of cheddar and mash into the sweet potatoes until smooth.

5 Season and add some chopped chives then spoon into your pumpkin, finishing with a few shavings of cheddar and some scattered caramelised onions and chives.
