Roasted Pumpkin
  • Pumpkin (any size, under 5-10 lbs will be easier to handle than larger pumpkins)
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • brown sugar
  • maple syrup
  1. The exact portions of toppings are easy to estimate depending on how large your pumpkin is.
  2. You'll need a few tablespoons olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste.
  3. Same with the brown sugar and syrup, use as much as you like but there is no need to over apply, I found that I liked the sweet version roasted with some brown sugar and syrup, then I added a little more after the tray came out of the oven.
  4. Slice the pumpkin off the shell.
  5. Working with the pumpkin reminds me of slicing a cantaloupe.
  6. Roast the pumpkin slices at 400° for 30 minutes or until tender when checked with a knife.
You can roast the pumpkin with just oil, then add the toppings you prefer when it comes out of the oven if you prefer.
