- 17.5 oz sliced pumpkin
- A dash of extra-virgin olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- A pinch of turmeric
- 1 tbsp of sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp of pumpkin seeds
- 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp of honey
Preheat the oven to 425 ºF, arrange the sliced pumpkin on an oven tray and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil, salt and spices. We’ve opted for turmeric, but alternatively you could use a combination of Herbs de Provence, thyme, rosemary and even a dash of cumin to really give it some serious flavor.
Bake for about 20 – 25 minutes, depending on the oven. Take out of the oven, add the sesame and pumpkin seeds and bake for another 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and cover the pumpkin with a honey and balsamic vinegar dressing. It will make the perfect side dish for meat or fish! For an extra finish, you can always add some fresh cheese or feta.
