This Tamari Roasted Pumpkin practically melts in your mouth. Once baked, the pumpkin is sweet and soft. The pumpkin is roasted with the skin on which is not only very flavourful but adds another layer of texture to the dish. It goes really well with the savouriness of the tamari. The roasted almonds give the dish some much-needed crunch while the orange flavour notes of the cashew-orange cream underline and compliments the deep flavours of the pumpkin.
This dish only requires 6 ingredients and is gluten free. While it does take some time for the pumpkin to roast, there is not a lot of hands-on work required. You can pair this pumpkin with rice or a salad such as this Barley and Broccoli Salad. It certainly also works well as part of a bigger spread.
Another way to use this recipe is to cut the pumpkin into smaller chunks. The roasting time will decrease and you can serve the roasted tamari pumpkin chunks as part of a nourish bowl or use them as meal prep for your weekday lunches.
