This is one of our favourite ways to cook pumpkin in the Autumn. It’s just as delicious roasted in a wood-burning oven as it is a conventional one!
Preheat the oven to 200C/180 C fan/gas 6. Put the pumpkin pieces in a bowl with the other ingredients. Mix thoroughly to coat. Put in an oiled baking dish and roast for about an hour.
Kids in the kitchen:
Get the kids to mix the pumpkin pieces in with the other ingredients and spread out on the baking dish. Let them set the oven and timer.
