  • a few tablespoons of water if necessary.

  5. Sprinkle the pumpkin with salt and place the slices  on a baking tray (the flesh side down), laid with baking paper.
  6. Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until a knife can easily be inserted and removed from the pumpkin.

  8. With a large spoon, remove the flesh of the pumpkin from the skin and blend in food processor bowl for 3-4 minutes.
  9. Add a little water if you do not get the texture you want.
