I have been participating in the local farmers market lately which has giving me access to local prime vegetables. My buddy Frank had planted pumpkins behind his Grandmothers house and he gave me a few for halloween. I like pumpkin, to eat, and came up with the following.
The unsuspecting pumpkin and sweet potatoes
Put all back together
Smells like something I would eat.
Served with a curry style rubbed chicken.
And then roasted the seeds, yum!
You can call it what you like. I named it Jamaican Pumpkin Bake.
1 7or8 inch pumpkin, gutted.
1 small onion, diced
1 carrot, same condition
1 Stalk of celery chopped small
1/2 sweet potato, cut into bite size chunks
1/2 small butternut squash, ditto
1 fat clove garlic crushed & minced
2 Tablespoons soft butter
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 Tablespoon Knox's Jamaican Jerk dry rub spice blend or whatever jerk rub you like.
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder
salt & pepper
1 Cup chicken stock.
Put the pumpkin on a baking pan. I put a ring of foil around it to make it more stable.
Toss everything except the chicken stock together in a bowl. Put it in the pumpkin with the chicken stock.
I baked it at 400 degrees for 1-1/2 hours.
