{ METHOD }

First, bake the pumpkin for an hour at 190°C until soft but not overly browned.

Once baked, take the hot pumpkin and place it in a bowl and mash it well. Lumpy pumpkin means a lumpy mix.

Whilst the mash is still hot add the mixture of flour and the ORGRAN Egg Replacer (prepared according to packet instructions), mix to combine.

Knead the dough. If necessary, add a more flour until it becomes workable and dough like.

Wrap in in cling film and let it rest on a counter.

First boil chestnuts. Peel the chestnuts and crush them with your fingers into small pieces.

Melt the margarine in a pan and fry chestnuts. Season with cinnamon and add a little sugar.

Shape with dough into strand about 6 cm long and 2 cm thick.

Boil salted water to poach the pumpkin dough. They will float to the surface, cook for a further one minute.

Drain and place in a bowl, pat them dry with paper towel and top with the nuts and powdered sugar to serve.
