“This is a sweet, but not sugary pumpkin mash, which makes me think of holiday season whenever I cook it. It has a slight flavour of cinnamon and cloves and is very yummy! :) I hope you do enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 medium hokkaido squash, diced (or other pumpkin)
  • 1 -2 teaspoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (if your cayenne is strong, go easy and reduce it)
  • 3 cloves
  • approx. 500 ml water, boiling


  1. Place diced pumpkin, oil and spices in a big bowl. Toss to coat.
  2. Spread pumpkin on a paper-lined baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for 20 minutes or until nicely browned and tender.
  3. Remove from baking sheet (make sure to discard cloves) and place in a pot/bowl.
  4. Using a hand held blender and adding as much water as needed, puree until a thick mash has formed.
  5. Enjoy! :).
