Honey Mustard Roasted Pumpkin, Beets and Carrots - Pumpkin #2




I made this for more relatives who came back from Australia few weeks later after the pumpkin sabzi.
They have past their 50's and are conscious of the things they eat. 
Having living overseas for quite a long time, they love to eat roasted vegetables.
Something my hubby find it hard to take in.

I took the opportunity to try out this dish.
Very well recieved by them. I was only so so about this.




The beet was still crunchy, pumpkin soft and carrots were ok. So, there were 3 textures in this pile of roasted vegetables. I was asked for the recipe since March, and now the relatives are back again, I better get all the pumpkin recipes posted, LOL.

Whenever these relative are back, it's always the best time to cook anything with pumpkin! LOL

  8. With an Irish boy for a bf roast vegetables (esp pumpkin, potato and beets) are always very welcome on the dining table. Love the addition of the honey that gives it a nice sheen!

  9. hi,

    you should try the small Asian pumpkin (I do not know the name) rather than the big kuaylo pumpkin as the small type tastes much much better. I use only big one for soup with added spices. Butternut squash (cut in cubes)is the best version for roasting in oven with red onion, olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper. Lastly add some goat cheese or feta cheese before serving. Your roast veg looks delicious!

  11. This dish looks delish! I shall try this since I love pumpkin. Would it help if balsamic vinegar is used on the beetroot?

  12. I guess we are more used to steam/stir fry/boil our vegetables, rather than roast, which tends to be a little dried. But again, this is a very colourful dish and will serve as a lovely side dish for Christmas.
