It’s September which means all things pumpkin are officially in season! This year, instead of filling up on “pumpkin flavour,” why not go for the real thing? This roast pumpkin recipe is a delicious way to bring the seasonal squash to your dinner table. It’s so simple, you might even be inclined to experiment with different herbs and spices. Add roasted garlic, cumin or chili powder to bring some heat to the dish. Or use a sprig of rosemary for a festive touch.
