  • Oven
  • Blender/Food processor


  • 1 whole Pie Pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup water add 1 tbsp at a time.


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F
  • Cut up the pumpkin into chunks. I typically cut it in eighths lengthwise and then halve those pieces across so they're big square-ish chunks.
  • Arrange on a baking sheet and bake for about 35-40 mins depending on the heat of your oven until you can pierce the pieces easily with a fork.
  • Once cooled, cut off the peel and cut into slightly smaller chunks.
  • Add to a food processor or blender*
  • Add a bit of water (about 1/4 cup) and process until smooth. Add a bit more water a tablespoon at a time if you feel you need more.
  • *If you don't have a food processor or blender, you can do this in a bowl with a bit of water and a potato masher. You'll have to work those biceps and work that elbow grease, but it should work!
