  • pumpkin
  • butternut squash


  • Preheat your oven to 375° F.
  • With a large knife cut the pumpkin in half in either direction.
  • Scoop out all the seeds and stringy stuff .
  • Coat the cut edges of the pumpkin with butter or coconut oil or olive oil.
  • Place the cut pieces on a rimmed cookie sheet right side up or upside down.
  • Put it in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour. If you can stick a fork through it it’s done. :)
  • Once you have finished roasting the pumpkin, you can scoop the insides away from the outsides easily.
  • Put the insides in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.


You can do more than one pumpkin at time of course. Just make sure there is a little space between them for heat circulation.
