Cumin Pumpkin With Almonds Basil

Posted 2015-03-21 by Jac's Vegheadfollow
I LOVE pumpkin, it's one of my favourite vegetables and I think it goes exceptionally well with cumin. To make a great tapas dish simply combine roast pumpkin, crunchy almonds, sweet basil and earthy cumin.



Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: Serves 4-6 as part of tapas

Ingredients
1kg pumpkin
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp ground cumin
Salt & pepper to taste
100g raw or roasted almonds
Handful of fresh basil



Method
  • Preheat the oven to 200C.

  • Remove the seeds from the pumpkin and cut into wedges. Rub each wedge with olive oil, sprinkle with cumin and season to taste.



  • Arrange the wedges onto a lined baking tray and bake in a hot oven for 30-40 minutes or until tender and beginning to brown. Turn over at 20 minutes.



  • Once cooked remove from oven and arrange into several bowls. Scatter each dish with torn basil leaves and chopped almonds.

  • Add a final sprinkle of cumin, salt and pepper and enjoy hot or cold.



  • NOTE: Never throw out pumpkin seeds! Simply sprinkle with salt and roast for 20 minutes or make Soy and ginger seeds for a great snack!
