Grilled Pumpkins

The intense heat of the grill will caramelize some of the sugars in the pumpkin, making the flesh smoky and sweet. To prepare scrape away the seeds and fibers and slice into long ½” thick pieces. If you make a jack-o’lantern, why not grill the cut out pieces for dinner?!


  • Several ½” thick pumpkin slices
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg, ground sage, salt and pepper
  • Balsamic Vinegar and olive oil


Rub pumpkin slices with oil and vinegar and sprinkle with seasonings. Place slices on hot grill. Cook about 7 minutes on each side, or until nicely browned and tender. Remove peel and serve slices on a sandwich or as a side dish.
