Bad news! The pumpkin I bought the other day decided to go all mouldy on me D: I’d only used about 1/5 of it, too! I guess that’s a lesson to be learnt – use all your pumpkin at once. Which is what I’ll do next time. I had been wanting to make a pumpkin soup *sniff* Guess that’ll have to wait now. So my plan is to buy a pumpkin, make lots of puree with half of it and do a good soup with the other half.

I’ve had a packet of Granose sunflower seed, lentil and vegetable roast sitting in the cupboard for ages and ages now, so it’s about time I used it. I was just never sure what to use it for. I could have simply made a loaf with it, but that’s kinda boring, no? So I decided to do as the packet suggested and make some stuffed peppers (That is to say, one stuffed pepper).

SN851430Had these with a salad, would have been a  nice light meal, except I followed the pack instructions! It said use both sachets (for some reason you get 2 sachets though instructions require both…) for 2 peppers, so I used my initative and used 1 sachet for one pepper. There seemed to be a little much when I made it up, but persisted on and juststuffed the peppers extra tightly to fit it all in. I even grated some cheddar Sheese into one half of the pepper, so see if it made it taste good. The box had said put some goats cheese on top for the last ten minutes, but obviously I didn’t want to do that. So when it came to eat them, they were too full. They blocked the taste of the roasted pepper. I think the mixture would be better suited to filling 3 halves of pepper with rather than 2 halves. Oh well.

As for the taste, well, I can’t really vouch for that either. I’ve liked their sausage and burger mixes in the past, so thought this would taste good too. It was rather bland, even with the addition of the sheese to one half. Ah well. Perhaps if I added some herbs and spices and other flavourings, I can make my remaining sachet taste nicer.
