Today I want to share with you a different version of traditional mashed potatoes… pumpkin purée! The pumpkin can be roasted or boiled. If you have the time, I recommend roasting it to give the dish a unique and delicious flavor. Enjoy!

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • 2 Place the pumpkin on a baking dish. Sprinkle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake until a knife passes through it easily, about 1 hour. Let cool a bit.
  • 3 Transfer to a food processor. Add the butter and syrup. Process until soft and smooth.
  • 4 Serve hot.
