  2. Use a sharp knife to cut the pumpkin into chunks and then use a spoon to remove the seeds. First, cut the pumpkin in half then, lay the two halves flat-side down and cut the pumpkin into chunks. Remove the seeds from each chuck with a spoon.
  3. Cook the pumpkin one of two ways: bake it in the oven or saute it on the stove.

    Bake in the Oven
    • Place the pumpkin chunks into a roasting dish. Drizzle with olive oil and season.
