Evenly slice the pumpkin so that it will be perfectly cooked. Cover a baking pan with greaseproof paper and brush the pumpkin with oil.

Preheat the oven at 150°C. Put the pumkin on the tray, season with oil, salt and pepper and bake until golden but not burned.

Brush with chestnut honey, add sunflower seeds and serve baked pumpkin with chestnut honey warm.
