Pumpkin Masti

This is a fun way of eating vegetables - you get to use up those odd and ends that on their own aren't enough to make a dish but collectively they make a delicious baked vegetable dish or soup.
Slice off the ' lid ' of the pumpkin ...scoop out the flesh of the flesh neatly , discard seeds. Chop assorted vegetables - thickish . I used one Potato , one Carrot , 1 tablespoon chopped Garlic , 1/2 Onion , some Mushrooms.I added Olive Oil Salt and Pepper , a Green Chili and a chopped Tomato and parsley ..baked everything in a baking dish covered for 30 minutes till all vegetables were cooked.

Take the pumpkin shell , coat the inside with seasoning and olive oil .Bake empty for 5 minutes in the hot oven , take out , add the baked vegetables , some water or stock or leftover soup - just enough to make a light gravy ..add into the shell put the lid and allow the vegetables to further cook in the sealed pumpkin shell for another 10 minutes  - eat as a stew with rice or chunky bread , or perhaps a hearty soup . Comes out totally delicious.
