Ingredients
 

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 red onions, very finely sliced
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 500 g roughly chopped well roasted pumpkin flesh
  • 400 g can black eye peas
  • 150 g frozen peas
  • 225 g long grain rice
  • 568 ml water, boiling
  • 1 vegetable stock cube, crumbled
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the stir through paste

  • 4 tbsp roasted pumpkin seeds
  • 6 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 75 g Parmesan cheese, roughly grated
  • 4 tbsp roasted pumpkin flesh, roughly
  • 4 tbsp sunblush tomatoes
  • 6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, approx.

Instructions
 

  • Heat the oil in a medium sized saucepan (that has a tight-fitting lid)
  • Add the onion, turmeric and cumin seeds, cook for 3-4 minutes to soften.
  • Add the pumpkin flesh, blackeye and frozen peas, mix well.
  • Add the rice, water, stock cube.
  • Season well with salt and pepper, and then bring to a boil, stirring.
  • Cover the pan with a tight-fitting lid, turn the heat right down, and cook for roughly 12-15 minutes really gently or until the rice is cooked and the water absorbed.
  • You will be amazed at how little heat is required if you have a tight-fitting lid.
  • Meanwhile, blitz together all the ingredients for the paste, adding olive oil until you have a thick paste, season well.
  • Once cooked, remove the lids and fluff up with a spoon or fork, then fold through the paste and serve.
