Welcome to the ultimate air fryer pumpkin parcels recipe.
If you have been following my food blog for even a short length of time you’ll know that I am into frugal family cooking. I don’t mind eating lots of delicious food but I can not stand food waste. It is just wrong and we should only be buying food that we plan to eat.
Anything that is left beyond this should be going into making delicious leftover meals. And OMG it is amazing what you can make from leftovers. I often look forward to leftover meals just because they are so tasty and easy to make and only come about when we have food left in the bottom of our fridge.
Many years ago, we used to have a lot of food waste and were like the typical family that didn’t get value for money from their grocery shopping.
I would buy food for the week and then eat out because I couldn’t be bothered to cook, I would always have veg and meat that had gone off in the fridge and eggs never got eaten by their best before date. Then there was all the brands I would buy into that I didn’t really like and I didn’t see what else was available.
Now I get an incredible buzz from what little food waste we have. One of my favourite ones is pumpkin parcels made with leftover puff pastry and leftover pumpkin filling. It only takes a couple of minutes to make and is so tasty.
