A simple and delicious side dish. Leftovers taste great in a salad the next day. The cheese flavour is actually quite subtle. Cooking time may vary a little depending on the type of pumpkin you use. I prefer to do all of my roasting in a heavy cast iron roasting pan.


  1. Peel pumpkin and cut into 2 cm cubes.
  2. Splash olive oil into bottom of baking pan.
  3. Add pumpkin and crushed garlic and toss around until coated in oil.
  4. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake in 200c oven for 15-20min.
  6. Turn the pumpkin pieces and sprinkle with poppy seeds.
  7. Return to the oven and bake a further 10 -15 minutes.
