How to Cook Pumpkin

This roasted pumpkin recipe is simple, healthy and perfect for a fall snack or side dish. Roasting pumpkins is a great way to use up any leftovers from your pumpkin carving session, too. Plus, it’s super easy to make!

Just preheat your oven to 400°F, then cut up two cups of pumpkin into cubes. Spray them with zero-calorie cooking spray, and coat with seasonings to taste. We like to use ground cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and a sprinkle of salt.

Roast for about 20 minutes until the pumpkin cubes are soft and browned. Once it is finished, enjoy your roasted pumpkin as a healthy and delicious side dish. That’s it! So easy, and so yummy. Your family and friends will be so impressed. Give it a try next time you’re looking for a tasty pumpkin side dish. They’ll be asking you for the recipe in no time!
