Roasted Pumpkin with Coconut Lime Dressing

PSA: Pumpkin doesn't only come from a can, and it doesn't have to be made into pie!!! Autumn is one of my favorite seasons when it comes to produce. I love the root vegetables, apples, and squash you find at the market, but most of all I love the pumpkins. I don't mean spooky halloween pumpkins, I mean pumpkins that are perfect for roasting and made into this roasted pumpkin with coconut lime dressing. A little bit of tropical sunshine in autumn.


There's nothing more fun (or basic) than driving to a pumpkin patch in autumn and choosing a pumpkin that will sit in your kitchen for months. Don't get me wrong, it's a favorite activity, but my patience for lines and selfies often gets the best of me as I'd rather go to the local farmers market and choose a pumpkin out of the back of a truck. Call me Scrooge, I don't care.


I love the taste of roasted squash and pumpkin - and I don't even peel them! Give the skin a good scrubbing, but no peeling needed. The skin because delicate and easy to chew (PLUS it's a huge time saver), and it's actually my favorite part of the vegetable!


So go ahead, try out this autumnal side dish!
