Pumpkins and Squashes are here – yellow and orange friends

img_3399The season for pumpkins has been running already since August but now these wonderful vegetables are in their prime. They can be still resting outside until first frost ready to pick up and prepare yummy dishes.

The easiest way to prepare a pumpkin or a squash is to simply put it in a hot over for about an hour, depending on the size. That way you have all the seeds awakened and ready to eat as well. The pumpkin will need hardly any seasoning, just cut it in half and scoop up the flesh with a spoon. You can suck on the seeds later on, excellent alternative to popcorn while watching a movie.

Of course you can also cut any pumpkin or squash into large chunks, season wit salt and pepper, sprinkle olive oil or coconut oil and roast in the oven, medium heat, for about 40min. turning the pieces from time to time.

There is also a pumpkin soup and many variations of it. I will make a separate post about this delicious soup.

Happy eating!
