Roasted Pumpkin and Shallots with Sage

roasted pumpkin and shallots and sage

I made this side dish a few days ago for a meal that my church provided for a grieving family after a memorial service.  I had a pumpkin that I needed to use, but I didn’t want to make a pie.  A quick Google search turned up this recipe from Martha Stewart.  I got several compliments about it and enjoyed the spoonful that I ate, as well. In fact, I’m planning on using my other pumpkin to make for Thanksgiving, also.  It’s incredibly simple – practically foolproof and uses very few ingredients.  I recommend it, especially if you’re looking for something to do with those little pie pumpkins you bought for fall decorating.

**************************************************

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium pie pumpkin (about 4 lbs.), peeled, seeded, and chopped into 1-2 inch pieces
  • 2-4 shallots, quartered lengthwise (I cut mine into eighths and then halved the longest slices.)
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh sage, roughly chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, toss together all ingredients until pumpkin and shallots are coated in oil and seasonings.
  2. Spread into one layer onto a large cookie sheet.
  3. Bake at 450-degrees for 30-35 minutes, tossing once halfway through.

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

God bless you!
