Baby pumpkins stuffed with coconut vegetables


3 (about 320g each) golden nugget pumpkins
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 brown onion, halved, sliced
2 tablespoons korma curry paste
200g broccoli, cut in small florets
120g green beans, trimmed, cut into 3cm pieces
1 red capsicum, chopped
270g can light coconut cream
plain natural yoghurt and coriander sprigs, to serve

Step 1
Preheat oven to 180°C. Cut pumpkins in half horizontally. Scoop out seeds and discard. Place pumpkins, cut-side up, on a large baking tray. Drizzle with half the oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until just tender.

Step 2
Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until tender. Add curry paste and cook for 2 minutes. Add broccoli, beans and capsicum. Cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes or until well coated. Pour over the coconut cream. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes or until vegetables are just tender.

Step 3
Spoon vegetable mixture into pumpkin halves. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and hot.

Step 4
Place pumpkins on plates. Top with a dollop of yoghurt and coriander. Serve
