  • Heat the oven to 200°C.
  • Put the pumpkin on a sheet of foil and bring the foil over the top of the pumpkin to create a sealed packet.

  • About 10 minutes before the pumpkin is done, heat the oil in a pan and add the leeks and pumpkin.
  • Fry until the turnip is tender, adding a bit of water from time to time if necessary to keep the pan from drying out too much.

    I made, or rather tried to make, this recipe last night as a side dish for pan fried trout. There is a problem here. First of all, the pumpkin doesn't soften sufficiently at a 200 oven in 30 minutes and it is not ready for the pan. Secondly, the instructions say "About 10 minutes before the pumpkin is done, heat the oil in a pan and add the leeks and pumpkin. " I'm pretty sure they mean the "turnips" not the pumpkin. This is just confusing. The final outcome was tasty but not the kind of outcome I expected as there was very little pumpkin flavor. Adding the sesame seeds was a good idea.
