Flahavans Spiced Pumpkin Latte
Ingredients:
2 tbs Pumpkin Puree
1 tsp Honey
½ tsp Pumpkin Spice blend
250 ml Flahavans Barista Oat Drink
50ml Strong Coffee
Whipped cream for topping (optional)

To make a Pumpkin Puree:
To steam the pumpkin – peel and seed it, then cut into evenly sized cubes. Put the cubes in a steamer or colander set over a pan of simmering water and cook for 10-`15 mins (until softened and cooked through). Mash and leave to cool.

Pumpkin Spice Blend:
Blend 1 tbs mixed spice and ½ tsp allspice. Mix well.
Mix the pumpkin puree, spices, honey and oat drink in a pan and heat to a simmer. Using an electric milk frother or whisk, whisk for 30-45 secs or until oat drink mixture has a froth. Pour the hot coffee into a latte glass or mug, then add the spiced pumpkin drink. Top with cream, if using, then dust with a little more pumpkin spice.

Penne with pumpkin, crispy bacon, sage and Parmesan

neven pumkin penne

I love this time of year. Conor and Lucia have made their pumpkin lanterns and I never let anything go to waste. I make soup with the flesh that they have scraped out – which is also good with pasta. Sage is a herb that tastes particularly well with pumpkin.

This is a recipe that you could use any time of the year with butternut squash or with sweet potatoes instead of the pumpkin.

I mentioned recently how many butchers are making their own sausages and here is another chance to try some out. With colcannon, this makes a very tasty meal.

Colcannon is also delicious with any grilled meat or with Sunday lunch. I often use this onion gravy with roast meats or pork chops. Allowing it to carmelise adds great depth of flavour.

Happy cooking,

Neven

4 tbsp olive oil

175g (175g) smoked streaky bacon lardons

120ml (4fl oz) milk

75g (3oz) butter

Salt and pepper

Stout onion gravy, to serve (optional, see point 3)

Add the kale and scallions with a pinch of salt. Cover, shake vigorously and cook for 1½ minutes. Shake again and cook for another 1½ minutes, until the cabbage or kale is tender but still crisp.
  • 2 Heat the milk in a small pan or in the microwave. Mash the potatoes and then beat in the butter with enough of the milk to make a smooth, creamy mash. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve with the sausages and some gravy, if liked.
