Autumn time is pumpkin time. Those beauties keep flooding the supermarkets at the moment and have become a regular item on our menu at home. Especially the Hokkaido pumpkin is a favourite of mine, because it tastes amazing and you don’t have to peel it. No matter if you roast it or cook it, the peel will become so soft you can eat it and who doesn’t love a shortcut. This super quick roasted Hokkaido pumpkin is flavoured with lots of garlic and herbs, which makes it sweet, yet savory. It makes an excellent side dish for fish and meat. If you puree the roasted pumpkin, you can serve it like you would mashed potatoes or you can use it to make pasta dishes or risottos. The possibilities are endless!

I picked up some Hokkaido squash at a farmer’s market recently and I’ve been staring at it uncertain what to do. This recipe was really easy and delicious! I’m going to become a regular Hokkaido cook if I can find a source.
