Pumpkin is a great source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and it makes a delicious addition to sweet and savory dishes! Small varieties, like sugar or pie pumpkins are great for roasting and making your own pureé to have on hand all autumn. Make sure to save the seeds and roast them separately––they make a great snack!


1 small sugar pumpkin


  • 1. Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2. Cut your pumpkin in half and scrape out the seeds. (Save them to roast later for a healthy snack!)
  • 3. Place the pumpkin halves cut-side down on the baking sheet. Roast until fork-tender, about 30-40 minutes.

  • 6.Pulse a few times, then pureé on speed 1 until smooth.
