Roast Pumpkin on the Gril
In this recipe, I'll walk you through How to Roast Pumpkin on the Grill. Grill roasted pumpkin is a great way to cook your own pumpkin so you can ensure you're cooking with 100% pumpkin that is deliciously roasted in your own backyard.
- 1 3-pound sugar (AKA pie) pumpkin
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
Preheat your grill to 425-450 degrees F.
Cut the pumpkin in half with a sharp knife and scrape out all the guts (I like to save the seeds to roast them later).
Drizzle the pumpkin with olive oil.
Place each pumpkin half cut side down on the grill grates. Close the lid and grill for one of the following: If you plan to eat the pumpkin like you would squash (slice and serve), cook for 35-40 minutes. If you want to puree your pumpkin for use in other recipes, cook for 45-55 minutes. Use a fork to test for doneness.
Remove the pumpkin from the grill and either serve it hot with butter, brown sugar, and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, or scrape out the meat and puree it in a blender for 1-2 minutes until the pumpkin is totally smooth. You can know use the puree in any recipe that calls for pumpkin puree!
