Suitable for 10+ months (stage 3)

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 180c, 350F or Gas 4

Step 2
Cut the top off the pumpkin or squash and discard. Cut the pumpkin or squash into quarters and scoop out and discard the seeds and stringy pulp

Step 3
Place the pumpkin or squash pieces cut-side down in a large, deep baking dish with 1cm of water in the bottom

Step 4
Cover with foil and bake in the oven until tender (about 2 hours)

Step 5
Finely chop the onion and core and cut the apple into chunks

Step 6
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the meat or beans, onion and apple until tender (about 15 minutes)

Step 7
Add the remaining ingredients, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, then simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking

Step 8
Drain the water from the pumpkin or squash. Use a spoon to scoop out the soft flesh, then discard the skin

Step 9
Mix the flesh with the meat or bean mixture and return it to the baking dish. Cover with foil and return it to the oven until hot (about 20 minutes)
