When I was a kid, I hated pumpkin. I have one particular vivid memory sitting in out restaurant style booth dining table (nice!) with my Sister being tortured by a bowl of pumpkin soup my Mum made. 

My Sister suggested I scull some water after each spoon of soup. I filled my purple, plastic mug with water and followed her lead to finish the soup and be let off the table. My love of pumpkin since then has certainly grown and it is one of my favourite autumn foods.

I recently bought a huge Kent pumpkin most of which became soup and the rest was roasted and smeared on some toast to give you Honey Sesame Roasted Pumpkin Crostini with Feta and Rocket Oil. I don’t think you’ll need water to get this down (I hope!). Honey Sesame Roasted Pumpkin Crostini with Feta and Rocket Oil |erin made this
