Now these pumpkins really are magic, because they’re such handy things to cook in the kitchen. They are great for vegetarian dishes and also to get kids eating vegetables, because they taste sweet and meaty at the same time.
This is a great dish to serve on its own or as an accompaniment with meat or chicken or fish. It’s also very good if you have vegetarian friends over for dinner because you can put some cheese on top of it and that can be their meal while everybody else is tucking into roast beef or whatever.
You are going to roast the pumpkin with some turnip just to offset its sweetness with a bit of bite from the turnip and the whole thing is pumped up with flavour with honey and orange, garlic and bay.
