Roasted Pumpkin
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1 Small Pumpkin
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Start with an adorable little pumpkin. Mine cost about $2.50 at the picking farm. Wash off all the dirt, and dry it.
  3. Using the sharpest knife you have, cut off the top of the pumpkin.
  4. Slice the whole thing in half.
  5. Using a large spoon, scrape out the insides. But, don't throw them away...they make delicious candied pumpkin seeds!
  6. Coat the insides of the pumpkin with olive oil, and place on foiled cookie sheet.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 50 minutes. This time will change depending on the size of your pumpkin.
  8. When done, the skin will be darker than normal, and a fork will easily poke through.
  9. Let your pumpkin sit at least 10 minutes, until cooled, and then remove the skin & chop into pieces.
