Who said comfort food isn't healthy? Fantastic recipe. I used butternut squash and a seasoning mix called Sicilian Mix. It's really for bread dipping, but it smelled so good I just had to try it. Worked perfectly too. I didn't need sugar, as the squash is naturally a little sweet on it's own. I loved how you can make it ahead of time, and finish it off in 5 minutes just before serving. That's my kind of dish. Thanks mummamills, for a wonderful addition to my squash dishes. Made for Auzzie/NZ Recipe Swap #25.
WOW o'kay I overcooked mine a little in the initial cooking but went against totalling evaporating all the liquid as it looked so buttery and when I plated up it was a little mushy but when we tasted it was oh this is so good and honestly next time I'll do it the same and mash it as I think it would be the best mashed pumpkin you could get and I love a good mash but even as we had we all loved it. I used butternut pumpkin and had just under 600 grams of cubed flesh and used the full recipe amounts and well 3 of us really enjoyed this wonderful side dish served with sweet Aloha Wings, thank you mummamills, made for your cook-a-thon.
We brought a beautiful pumpkin and used some of it in this recipe. Didn't add the sugar as the pumpkin has a lovely flavour all on its own. I used thyme and a little finely grated lemon zest. This cooked away nicely in the oven and required a minimum of fuss, an added bonus was that the leftovers were really tasty when reheated the next day. Made for Aussie/Kiwi Swap July 2009.
Very nice recipe! I love having pumpkin and winter squash as savory vegetables, and this recipe makes the pumpkin very tender and tasty. It tastes fine as it is without sugar, but if someone likes a little bit of sweetness, they might want to add a little bit more than a teaspoon of sugar, and I would recommend adding it as brown sugar if they did. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue
Outstanding! Excellent taste, great directions and yummy way of making pumpkin. I kept to the recipe even added a little sugar. Everyone enjoyed the superb side dish. Thank you mummamills.
This is a recipe I use all the time. Quick and easy, and very tasty. If I don't have chicken stock, water is almost as good. I also don't find the sugar necessary.
Very easy to make and a nice change from roasted pumpkin. A "keeper' for me.
Made this as per the recipe, we all enjoyed this alot, I love pumpkin, it was easy to do,I didn't add the sugar, will make it again. Thanks
