Stuffed smoked whole pumpkin question.

  • So my wife showed me some pics of stuffed pumpkins in the Coles magazine.


    And suddenly my mind went to something I now want to try. I'm thinking north African or Middle East type flavours. I want the rice inside the pumpkin on the bottom layer, with meat and spices above, so any meat juices would be part of the moisture that cooks the rice.


    Has anyone done something like this, or come across something like this? Am I best looking at adapting a tagine recipe?


    Interested in others thoughts?

  • My folks do something a bit like that but without the smoke or meat. Just oven. I forget the exact flavours, but there's rice inside and raisins or sultanas, I think turmeric as well. It tends to just be a way to serve rice in an interesting way.


    I think morrocan spice combinations would go well, but I'm not sure what meat. Lamb possibly?

  • I feel it would be a bit like hongkong claypot, but without the crunchy bits on the bottom, which makes me think it's not going to be quite as good. Pumpkin rice is nice, and claypot is nice, but...

  • I have seen it done in a video but can't remember who. It was a very large pumpkin that included beef and rice cooked low and slow. Served sliced open like a flower and the ingrediency spilled out.
