Roasted Pumpkin bursts with flavor. It's an excellent, simple side dish. And so easy!
Roasted Pumpkin is not just for pies and soup.
What do you do with a pumpkin if you aren't ready to make a pie or jack-o-lantern? As part of our vegetable subscription service, we found ourselves with two small pumpkins. We didn't want them to go to waste so I roasted them.
Different Cultural Uses
When we had our Chinese friend over to supper a couple years ago, she commented that in China, they fry pumpkin and eat is as a vegetable. I hadn't ever eaten pumpkin except in pie, and this was a novel idea to me. I decided to roast it like I do other veggies. It was super, especially served with Sweet Bourbon Salmon!
It would be good roasted like Acorn Squash with a little brown sugar and butter.
What You Need
This is a simple recipe that doesn't require many tools. You'll need measuring spoons, a vegetable peeler, a large knife, and a baking sheet. I prefer using a jelly roll pan because they have an edge that sticks up and prevents the oil from running off.
Simple Roasted Pumpkin Recipe
- Spread the pumpkin chunks on a cookie sheet.
- Drizzle with olive oil.
- Mix to cover the pumpkin in the oil.
- Spread the pumpkin evenly over one layer on the pan.
- Sprinkle with the Herbes de Provence and salt (if using).
- Bake in a 400F degree oven for 40 minutes, turning the chunks over at about 20 minutes.
