  1. Wash pumpkin with water, then wipe with kitchen paper. Cut into pieces with dimensions as desired and remove seeds. Pumpkin seeds can be cleaned and baked as healthy snacks. 
  2. Place and arrange pieces of pumpkin in a pan coated with baking paper or aluminum foil. Put pan in a warm oven at 220 C and bake for one hour. Baking time depends on the size and thickness of pumpkin pieces. If the pieces are larger and thicker, you may need more time to bake. 
  3. Remove baked pumpkin and let cool briefly. Optionally, you can sweeten roasted pumpkin with honey, brown sugar and add spice up with cinnamon or vanilla. I prefer to eat my piece of pumpkin with cinnamon and powdered ginger.
