    WizzyTheStick's Note:

    This dish is often eaten with roti ( a local flatbread) but it will make a great vegetable side dish to any meal. What West Indians call pumpkin is actually calabaza squash.

      This was really exceptional -- I had purchased a calabaza squash, and not having any recipes I searched for one. What luck -- I paired this with grilled chicken breast chunks marinated in yogurt/onion/allspice/pine nuts and some rice. As others said, the smokeyness of the onions/garlic/cumin seed blend so well with the squash. I also added just a drop of honey to mine to get a little more richness. But seriously, perfection.

      Delicious! The cumin seeds go very nicely with the calabaza. A very nice inexpensive, healthy and quick recipe with exotic flavors.
