Mix 3 tablespoons of corn flour with some cold water. Cook the pumpkin mixture and add corn flour mixture. Keep om stirring till a thick pudding. Put the pudding in the base in the baking dish. Let the tart cool down outside the refrigerator (will take about an hour).

Looks so good Gill! They are always great, but a particularly good combination of veg for us this week! Just made a veggie lasagne with the squash, leeks and mushroom. Yum! X
