Roasted Sugar Pumpkin Recipe

(makes 4 servings)

1 (2-3 pound) sugar pumpkin
2 tablespoons lime or lemon juice
1 tablespoon canola or other neutral oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce or Tamari
1 tablespoon honey or brown sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger

Preheat the oven to 325 F. Cut the pumpkin in half (top to bottom) and clean out seeds and strings with a spoon. Reserve seeds for roasting (see: Roasted Pumpkin Seeds). Cut into 1-1.5 inch slices. Place pumpkin slices on a baking sheet.

Mix lime juice, oil, soy sauce, honey, cinnamon, and ground ginger in a small bowl. Using a basting brush, slap onto pumpkin slices. Bake for 20 minutes and brush on spices again. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the pumpkin is tender. Cooking times vary a lot per pumpkin so don’t be surprised if it takes you longer. Serve hot, warm, or cold.
