DIRECTIONS

  • Take off the seeds but leave on the shell and cut into extra large cubes. The shell will be easier to remove once it's cooked, or it can be left on as well, since it becomes as soft as the pumpkin (but I like it off).
  • Steam or boil the pumpkin until cooked. As a variation, if you're steaming carrots as part of the menu, you might want to reuse that same water to boil the pumpkin for an added touch of sweetness.
  • Chop the onions and the garlic and then saute them in the oil until cooked, but not caramelized. Top the pumpkin with the onions, garlic and some of the oil (though you don't have to use all of it, just enough to drizzle over each pumpkin cube.).
  • You can serve warm or chilled.
