Recipe Notes

To roast the pumpkin, cut it in a smaller slices, remove the seeds. Don’t throw the seed, you can use them afterwards. Place it on the baking tray, lined with parchment paper or silicone mate. Slice pumpkin and place it on the baking tray. Bake in preheated oven 180 °C / 350 °F until soft – about 1 hour, depending on how thick your pumpkin slices are. Check with a fork, if it’s soft. Then let it cool a little, remove the skin and it is ready to be blended into puree.
