Pumpkin and Feta

12 Sep

Hello there,


fall is (almost) here! And with fall comes… pumpkin. Which is great! Here comes a very simple recipe which is great for weeknight dinners, but also, maybe with a roast or some other meat dish, fancy enough for Sunday night when the in-laws come for dinner. It requires very few ingredients, and doesn’t take long. So, without further ado:

serves 3-4

pumpkin, washed, cleaned and cut into cubes; I used one small hokkaido, approx. 1.5 pounds
feta cheese, cut into cubes; I used greek feta, approx. 0.5 pound
salt, pepper, thyme

pumpkin slices


In a pot, bring water to a boil; add salt. Put in the pumpkin cubes, and let boil for 3-4 mins., not longer. Take out, drain, and transfer into a baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.

Preheat your oven to 350° F.

Cover the pumpkin cubes with feta cubes, sprinkle with thyme.

before baking

Bake for approx. 30 mins., until the feta starts to turn very light brown. Enjoy!

after baking

Easy, right?! We ate ours with cooked, sliced beetroot and a fresh green salad.

Ah, I love fall. In fact, I’ll take a nice long walk right now.
Good bye for now! Eat well!
