Mango recipes

Nothing says summer like mangoes. Go beyond the criss-cross cuts - bake a mango-filled meringue loaf with lime mascarpone, start off the day with a sweet coconut quinoa pudding with sticky mango, or toss it through a spicy warm weather Thai salad.

Pumpkin filo pies


You'll need

18 sheets filo pastry (about 1 pack) 100 gm unsalted butter, melted 1 egg, lightly whisked 40 gm (¼ cup) white sesame seeds For dusting: pure icing sugar and ground cinnamon   Pumpkin and feta filling 670 gm butternut pumpkin (about ½), seeds removed 100 gm feta, coarsely crumbled 1 tbsp ground cinnamon

Method

  • 01
  • For pumpkin and feta filling, place pumpkin in a steamer basket fitted over a saucepan of boiling water, steam until tender (30-35 minutes). Transfer to a bowl, coarsely mash with a fork, then cool. Add feta and cinnamon, season to taste and set aside.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Lay a sheet of filo on a clean work surface, brush with melted butter and top with another layer of filo, then repeat. Brush the top with butter and fold shortest sides over to meet. Divide the pumpkin filling into 6 and spread one-sixth along the longest side, leaving 3cm at each end. Fold in sides, then roll up loosely and twist into a coil. Place onto a baking-paper-lined oven tray. Repeat with remaining pastry and filling. Brush tops with beaten egg, scatter with sesame seeds, bake until golden (15-20 minutes). Serve immediately dusted with a little icing sugar and a pinch of cinnamon.

Cinnamon and icing sugar on a savoury pie may sound strange (unless you're familiar with pastilla) but it really works with the flakiness of the filo and the smooth pumpkin. When rolling the pumpkin filling in the filo, ensure it's quite loose otherwise the pastry will break when you form the coil.
