Halloween is creeping ever closer. Do you do anything to celebrate? If so, we have some super spooooooky recipes that may help with the festivities

This delicious pumpkin stew is one of them! It’s filling, warming and super healthy - as well as full of seasonal ingredients. We topped our hearty pumpkin stew with some gorgeously grotesque eyeball dumplings! (‘Simple yet effective’ is the motto for this one)

Regardless of whether you wanna spook your family, or just eat a delicious autumnal meal, this recipe is well worth a try!
