Pumpkin & Chickpeas Filo Pie with Ras-El-Hanout

I stumbled across this recipe and changed it to what you see today and I can not tell you how delicious and satisfying it is. This was a Chtistmas recipe for me but I have been making it for every gathering and everyone who had it asked for the recipe.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did 😋


1 Whole Pumpkin,
3 Red Onions
2 Blob Garlic
1 Can Chickpeas,
1 Bunch Coriander,
1 Bunch Mint,
Handful of Rosemary,

1 Jar Grilled Pepper
Filo pastry
2 Tbsp Dukkah
Date Syrup to drizzle
