Step 1Peel and cut pumpkin into 2 1/2 cm (1 inch) cubes (no need to peel if using Hokkaido). Steam for 5 minutes on a medium heat until soft. Dry off in pan for 1 minute so the pumpkin is not wet.
Step 2Mash with a fork or blitz to form a puree. If using a food processor, pulse so careful not to over blend. You don’t want it runny like a soup.
