The season for squashes is coming and it always brings autumn to my mind. I love the sweet, rich flesh inside protected by the beautiful thick skins that you can use for decoration in so many ways. Today I would like to show my favourite ways of preparing squashes and pumpkins - some are sweet, the others savoury. Now choose your favourite! :)
Roasted Pumpkin Wedges
This is the easiest way to serve pumpkin and also my favourite one. You simply drizzle the pumpkin with olive oil, add garlic cloves and fresh sage leaves, then roast until soft. Simple and delicious! Get the recipe here!
