How To Make Pumpkin Puree

How to make pumpkin puree

Simple homemade pumpkin puree that everyone can easily make.




  1. Preheat the oven to 375F (190C).
  2. Cut the pumpkin in big chunks. Scoop out the seeds. (See the video above)
  3. Place the pumpkin chunks on a baking sheet. Skin-side down.
  4. Roast for 1 hour until fork tender.
  5. Remove the pumpkin from skin when they are still warm. It’s easier then.
  6. Puree in batches in a food processor until smooth. Add in a few tablespoons water if it is too dry and scrape down the pumpkin chunks as needed.
  7. Freeze it in zip bags for a later use.


You might need to add a little water over the chunks of pumpkin in the food processor depending on the type of pumpkin you use. Some pumpkins are too dry, some are watery, so check it and decide when pureeing pumpkin. If it’s too dry, it’s almost impossible to puree them, so add about 1/4 cup water gradually and then run the processor.
