Instructions homemade pumpkin puree

  • Clean your pumpkin under cold water. Split it in half and using a regular spoon or an ice cream scoop, scoop out the seeds and the fiber. If you'd like, you can save the seeds for another use.
  • Cut into smaller pieces and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Cover it with aluminum foil and put into preheated oven at 190 °C. Roast until it becomes tender, about 30 to 45 minutes.
  • Remove the pumpkin from the oven and let cool it down for about 1 hour. Then using a large spoon remove the flesh of the roasted pumpkin into your food processor or blender and process until smooth and creamy, about 3 – 4 minutes.
