Butter Fried Pumpkin recipe

This is a really simple way to prepare pumpkin and it's absolutely perfect as a side dish to any meal in place of potatoes. You could also use it in salads - just toss with rocket leaves, red onion and a balsamic dressing for a delicious dinner.


  • 1 small sugar pumpkin
  • 50g plain flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • 60g butter

Method of Preparation:

  1. Cut the pumpkin in half and remove the seeds, pith and outer skin. Cut into chunks.

  2. Mix the flour with the salt and pepper and then toss the pumpkin in the flour to coat.

  3. Melt the butter in a deep frying pan and once foaming, add the pumpkin to the pan, turning frequently until golden and tender.

Add a little extra salt and pepper over the pumpkin to serve. You could also add some dried herbs into the flour for a little extra flavour. This recipe serves 2.
