When carving pumpkins, it is often necessary to scrape the meat thinner inside. This would be a great time to experiment with small amounts of pumpkin for cooking. This meat can be cut into small chunks, mixed with olive oil and spices and roasted in the oven. Serve as a side dish in place of a vegetable.
