Roasted oven pumpkin with herbs

Our instagram followers have probably already noticed that we love pumpkin season. As you know I always try to use seasonal ingredients when I cook or bake. And since it´s pumpkin season right now I came up with many recipes to use pumpkins. One of my favorites is this recipe- simple as it is but really delicious and healthy as well!

You can serve it as a side dish which I did next to grilled sea bass in a salt crust… mmh it tasted amazing.  Another recipe is an appetizer- baked pumpkin in very thinnly sliced ham (let me know in the comments, if you´d like me to post it). Since my grandmother didn´t get to grow any pumpkins this year I always buy them at the market, where I mostly get butternut squash or hokkaido pumpkins- which are my favorite. Which pumpkins are your favorite? And do you guys have great recipes using pumpkins?  Just link them down below, I would appreciate trying them! (:

Ingredients:

  • 1 hokkaido pumkin
  • salt, pepper
  • herbs: marjoram, thyme, oregano
  • olive oil

Peal pumkin, remove seeds and cut into 1 cm thick slices. Lay on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt, pepper and the herbs and bake in oven for about 30-40 minutes (oven temperature 180°C). Serve as a side dish, salad topping or simple as a snack.

Enjoy!
