Pumpkin Thai Red Curry

Halloween might be over, but our love for pumpkins lives on.


Looking for a tasty way to use up those leftover pumpkins? Niall Kirkland’s pumpkin Thai red curry is a deliciously hearty winter meal to warm up those dark nights.

Made with plenty of garlic, ginger, fresh chilli, and a few tablespoons of rich, aromatic Thai red curry paste — it’s a flavour sensation that will have you glowing from the inside out.

Plus, Niall’s recipe is great to use up any leftover veg, just throw it in the pan along with the broccoli at the end for a nutritious boost that tastes great.
