Toasted Spiced Winter Pumpkin Medley

My plan last night was to make pumpkin soup for dinner, but I wanted to try this recipe so I made a fried chicken instead and served it as a side dish – Tommy didn't stop raving about it. He's a big fan of sweet winter pumpkins, but since I tend to like savory foods, this was the perfect balance.

Roasted Spiced Winter Pumpkin Medley - a wonderful combination of sweet, spicy, smoky and savory flavors.

Perfect addition to a turkey or chicken meal. You can use any winter squash, I used half of a small butternut, buttercup, and delicatessen squash. If I had used the whole thing I would have used two pans, but I plan to use the rest in another recipe.


Be careful not to overfill the parts as this will prevent steaming.

SPICE MIX – This makes enough spice mix for a couple of recipes. Keep the rest in a ziplock bag to prepare roasted vegetables or baked french fries another night.
