As a kid the only dishes I ate that are made with Pumpkin are curries and side dishes that go well with rice. I learned that Pumpkin is used in making so many delicious dishes like breads, latte, ice creams, pies to name a few.

You can get store bought pumpkin puree but homemade puree gives a better taste and texture to the dishes. It’s super easy to make and can be frozen too.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Bake Time : 45 minutes

Makes : 2 cups


Orange Pumpkin : 1 medium


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cut the pumpkin into half, place the pieces on a cookie sheet upside down and bake for 45 minutes.

Let it cool and take out the pulp with a fork and puree it in a blender.

Puree can be store in the refrigerator for 5-7 days or frozen for 1 month for best taste.
