Process

Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. 1 – Preheat your oven to 175’C/350’F
  2. 2 – Line a baking tray with baking/parchment paper and set aside.
  3. 3 – Slice your pumpkin in half and then in to slices – you want them to be about 1 cm / 1.4 inch thick
  4. 4 – Carefully remove and discard the seeds
  5. 5 – Place your sliced pumpkin into a bowl, or directly onto your baking tray then drizzle with coconut oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.
  6. 6 – Make sure your pumpkin is evenly spaced on your baking sheet, you want to make sure the slices have some room to breathe, then roast for 20-30 minutes until the flesh is soft and tender and the edges and skin are nice and crisp. You will want to rotate the tray and flip your pumpkin slices over around the half way point.
  7. 7 – Enjoy it as a side with your annual Christmas feast (but please promise me you will make it on the regular, not just once a year!) or daily/weekly with your protein of choice. It makes a great snack, especially drizzle with a little almond butter (trust me!!) or my creamy, dreamy, 2 minute {paleo} garlic and dill dressing ( http://betterwithcake.com/breakfast/creamy-2-minute-garlic-and-dill-dressing-vegan-gluten-free-paleo-friendly/ ) or with an egg (or 2) on it, alongside some avocado and grilled tomato for a seriously nourishing breakfast.
  8. Enjoy xo
