Roast pumpkin

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Sackville

We've all heard of roasting pumpkin seeds -- now you can roast the pumpkin too! Makes a colourful and tasty side dish for a number of meals, but I especially like it with chicken or fish. Feel free to try different spices or just use salt and pepper for a more simple but equally good version.

Roast pumpkin is my favourite vegetable, and now its even tastier with the added chili 'kick' I served it with Oven Roast Beef, roasted potatoes and baby peas. A definite keeper.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place oil, chilli, chilli powder and garlic into a bowl and mix into a paste.
  2. Add the pumpkin to the bowl and mix until all the chunks are well coated.
  3. Spread the pumpkin out on a non-stick baking sheet (or just cover your tray with tin foil).
  4. Sprinkle over some salt and pepper and then bake in a preheated 200 C or 400 F oven for 60 minutes or until tender. The pumpkin may be cooked before the hour is up, but keeping it in the oven and turning occasionally will help it to become nice and crispy.
