This Roasted pumpkin with pesto and feta is going to blow you mind with so many flavours! I think this is one of the best ways to eat pumpkin. Sweet pumpkin, herby pesto, sour feta and crunchy nuts just goes so well together.

What are the ingredients?

  • Pumpkin. Star of the dish great old pumpkin, gives a lovely sweet taste to the dish. Also so easy to prepare as you need to roast it with a skin on!
  • Pesto. I’ve made super simple parsley pesto here. Added some garlic, lemon juice and nuts, I love the simple ingredients!
  • Vegan feta. I will be honest it was my first time trying vegan feta and I thought I have to make something special with it! It was amazing and sour like real feta cheese!
  • Pine nuts. Another favourite nut of mine! I love a sweet and crunchy flavour in pine nuts! For beat result I would recommend to roast on a dry pan!
  • Chili flakes. Optional in this dish, as I like a little hotness with all the flavours. Also adds one more beautiful colour to the dish and makes it super colourful!

This roasted pumpkin with pesto and feta is now one of my best dishes with pumpkins. So many flavours and also looks so great! If you try it let me know what you think, I am so excited to hear the feedback! I can guarantee you are going to love it!

    What brand of vegan feta are you using? I’m gluten and soy free also and always looking for quality products.
