Fast and lazy pumpkin

I was inspired by a recepie that I saw on BBC on seasonal (autumn) cooking.

Instructions

  1. 1Cut the top off the pumpkin cleanly and reserve. Remove the seeds but leave a fair amount of flesh inside the pumpkin.
  2. 2Place the knob of butter inside the pumpkin, add freshly grated nutmeg, add the splash of alcohol and season generously with salt and pepper.
  3. 3Put the reserved top of the pumpkin back on as a lid and microwave the pumpkin on high for 5-10 minutes depending on the microwave. Leave to rest for 2 minutes.
  4. 4Ckeck that the flesh is cooked through and moist and serve as individual portions with the lid on.
