Savory Baked Pumpkin with Garlic and Basil

I was telling you that this year we have a lot of pumpkins from our home garden, after we got tired of the pumpkin galette we came across this recipe by chance. To be honest, I was skeptical throughout the cooking process (and I had nothing to lose, because pumpkins spoil if I don't cook them), but the result was amazing. The husband asked for the second portion, he also admitted that he did not expect such a good taste.

We served it with cheese and sour cream, without meat and other vegetables, we had a very full and special dinner.

To taste I would say that there is something between baked carrots and potatoes, really worth a try.

Ingredients

Pumpkin
1 kg
Olive oil
50 ml
Salt
0.5 tsp
Garlic cloves
5 pieces
Dried basil
1 tsp

Step by step

1

Peel a squash and cut it into 1-1.5 cm thick slices.

2

Mix the oil with the salt, basil and crushed garlic.

3

Arrange the pumpkin in an oven tray.

Using a brush, grease the pumpkin slices with the mixture of oil and spices.

4

Put it in the oven for 40 minutes at 200 degrees.

For me, it baked nicely on top and browned and underneath.

5

Let it cool for about 15 minutes and serve with whatever you like - as a vegetable garnish, or with some cream cheese.

Good appetite!
