Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

Slice the pumpkin and then cut into chunks.

In a bowl, combine the pumpkin and oil.

  1. I too love roasting pumpkin – a good tip I followed is to reduce the cooking temperature and increase the cooking time – it creates an even more tender and sweet result 😊
