    Pumpkin may also be sauced and served as a vegetable, or made into a puree, mixed with cooked rice and well seasoned with the beaten yolks of 2 eggs or a little cream to which pepper and salt has been added. Grated cheese may also be added to sauté pumpkin, allowing 1 oz (30g) cheese to 450g (1 lb) pumpkin.
