Here's how it's done...

  • 1

    For the pie pastry…

    Add the flour, salt and butter cubes to a food processor fitted with a metal blade. I use the Morphy Richards PrepStar food processor. Pulse about 12 times.

  • 2

    Add the egg and yolk and pulse again 5 times until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. Be careful not to allow dough to form in the machine.

  • 3

    Remove the mixture from the mixing bowl onto cling film and form a dough by hand. Finish the dough by wrapping it in cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes minimum.

  • 4

    Gently dust flour on the surface and roll the dough out to a 1/4 inch thickness on a 27cm disc. Transfer the rolled dough into the pie pan, trim the edges and flute them as desired. Freeze the case for 20 minutes.

  • 5

    Crunch the parchment paper and place it on the prepared pastry case.  Fill with lentils of your choice and bake for 30 minutes.

  • 6

    Cool on the rack.

    For the filling…

    Halve the pumpkin and scoop out the pulp and seeds from the centre. Save the pumpkin seeds for roasting later on. Cut rough pumpkin wedges on a baking sheet and roast at 190C for 30-40 minutes or until tender. Allow the pumpkin to cool down and peel the skin off.

  • 8

    Measure out the pumpkin flesh to 425g and puree in a food processor.

  • 9

    Add rest of the ingredients and puree until smooth.

  • 10

    Return the pastry case to the baking sheet and pour in the filling. Bake on the lower rack of the oven for 45-50 minutes. Cool on the rack for at least 1 hour.
