Halloween is two weeks away, and everywhere you turn, you see some sort of ghouls or pumpkins. I like the latter so today I am making this perfect Fall side dish of honey butter roasted pumpkin that will put your pumpkins into good use.
As simple as it sounds, this recipe is absolutely delicious. Who would have thought pumpkins could taste this good!
As the name suggests, this honey butter roasted pumpkin calls for only 3 ingredients: pumpkins, honey and butter. I love a bit of heat in everything, so I added a little cayenne pepper, which is optional.
The end result is soft, tender, silky, sweet, buttery roasted pumpkin that tastes so good and delicious you want to have it as the main dish.
I prefer the smaller kabocha pumpkin but regular pumpkin works just fine. Just pick out a smaller pumpkin so it’s easier to slice it into wedges. I used a cleaver to slice the pumpkin. Try my recipe this pumpkin season, you will love them!
