  • 5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped rosemary
  • 100 g feta cheese (3.5oz)
  • 2 tbsp pepitas

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 200C/400F and line a large baking tray with parchmant paper
  • Cut pumpkin into wedges, or rounds if using butternut squash or acorn squash. Remove seeds. Skin can be kept on.
  • Lay out pumpkin on your prepared baking tray

  • Pour the olive oil mix over the pumpkin and use a silicone pastry brush or your hands to coat the pumpkin on both sides.
