Roasted Hokkaido Pumpkin Wedges with Apple Vinaigrette

Labels: { , } | © 2013 |

A simple recipe for roasted pumpkin with olive oil. The roasting process tends to bring out the natural sweetness of the pumpkin and gives it an irresistible aroma and taste and the chunky apple vinaigrette flatters the sweetness of pumpkin in this easy, lovely Autumn side dish.

Roasted Hokkaido Pumpkin Wedges with Apple Vinaigrette

adapted from essen und trinken
  • 1 Hokkaido pumpkin (1 kg)
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • Coarse sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 Apple
  • 4 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp Apple syrup or maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp Water
  • 3 Spring onions
  • 2 tbsp Pumpkin seed oil
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Cut the pumpkin into half, remove the seeds and pulps. Cut each half into 6 wedges. Brush each wedge with olive oil and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Season the pumpkin wedges with salt and pepper. Bake in the middle of hot oven for about 25 minutes.
  2. Core the apple and cut it into dices. Add in lemon juice, apple syrup, water, salt and pepper. Stir until well mixed. Slice the spring onions and add into the dressing together with pumpkin seed oil.
  3. Transfer the pumpkin wedges into a large serving dish and serve with the prepared vinaigrette.

A lovely autumn side indeed. I can smell the aromas from here. Your chunky apple vinaigrette is the perfect complement -- I would also want to drink it as tea! ;-).

Elisabeth Foodandthrift 16/10/13 19:20

Angie, I adore roasted pumpkins, and the slices are so convenient to serve, and the apple vinaigrette is a perfect and lovely pairing. The aroma must be like the best...better, than the most expensive French perfume...LOL

Katie | Healthy Seasonal Recipes 16/10/13 21:16

So pretty Angie. I love these photographs and the simplicity of the recipe. It makes the falling leaves seem less sad and more celebratory!

Such a gorgeous side dish! And I never thought of serving squash with a vinaigrette, but it's a marvelous (and yummy) idea!

Abbe@This is How I Cook 17/10/13 04:05

It looks so good. And festive. I tried some not to long ago but I think i cut the slices to thin and it turned to mush. Try, try again!

Gina Stanley 17/10/13 05:40

I'm warming to pumpkin, I think next week I'm getting one. This is probably the best way to make it too, lots less calories than in cake. Happy Hump Day!

Cass @foodmyfriend 17/10/13 05:59

Such stunning colours. Your pumpkin pieces look cooked to perfection!

mjskit 17/10/13 06:22

You're right - roasting definitely brings out the flavor of pumpkin and many other winter type squash. I've never tossed it in a vinaigrette; however, your apple vinaigrette sounds like a wonderful complement! Great dish!

The Duo Dishes 17/10/13 06:45

Apples and pumpkin...two great fall fruits! Looks like they make a good pair too.

Anne ~ Uni Homemaker 17/10/13 08:08

What a lovely autumn dish Angie. Pumpkin and apples are a great combo. Delicious!

Barbara 17/10/13 14:34

I see some version of this frequently in the fall and can't imagine why I haven't tried it. I do love squash of all kinds, and think this would be perfect for acorn squash.

I've never heard of apple syrup but it sounds great. Roasted pumpkin does smell amazing and this combination is a serious winner!

Monica 17/10/13 19:24

Great time of year to roast root vegetables. There's a place for everything but it's lovely to see a recipe for cooking with an actual pumpkin rather than just the canned kind.

Asha Shivakumar 17/10/13 19:25

The vinaigrette sounds ridiculously yummy. What a great side this would make on a festive table. Love the idea my dear. have a great week Angie.

Seems like a great idea to pair pumpkin and Apple Vinaigrette ,mmh!

Ilke 19/10/13 04:56

I love roasting them too, so easy to pull together. You have a great dressing to go with it. Maple syrup is a good addition.
I am so glad it is fall again. I want this to last as long as possible, possibly skipping winter :)

grace 19/10/13 10:46

fantastic side! that vinaigrette sounds oh-so-tasty.

motherrimmy 19/10/13 23:30

I can't say I've seen pumpkin seed oil in the stores, but I can imagine it would be great for all kinds of things. I bet it would be lovely in a vinaigrette like this one.

Lovely side dish! So healthy and delicious :)

Choclette 20/10/13 22:19

Ahh, found you at last. I'm not on Google+ which is where I keep getting taken. Anyway, your pumpkin looks wonderful, love it. I'm feeling pumpkin deprived this year as we didn't manage to grow any and it's virtually impossible to buy any good ones.

Kathy 20/10/13 23:29
