When recipes like pumpkin pie or pumpkin scones require pumpkin puree this is a great option; the p[umpkin is baked rather than boiled so you retain flavour and don't add any more moisture.

I love pies (my favourite meal is pie and mashed potatoes!) but I don't like the fat content of the pastry so I came up with this simple but very delicious idea. Use as you would any ordinary pastry or for pasties. All measurements are approximate. If you don't like the hassle of peeling the butternut pumpkin you can split it in half, take out the seeds and roast in a hot oven until it's soft about 30 - 45 minutes.

There's no mystery to cooking pumpkin really but using the pressure cooker and steamer means water doesn't get into the pumpkin when its cooking, the flavour stays and it's quick.
