Baked pumpkin with Greek yogurt sauce

Baked pumpkin with Greek yogurt sauce. It's seriously delicious! So, you start by slicing up some pumpkin and tossing it with some olive oil, salt, and pepper. Then, you roast it in the oven until it's tender and caramelized – the smell is amazing!
But the real star of the show is the Greek yogurt sauce. You mix together some plain Greek yogurt with fresh lemon juice, garlic, and some spices like cumin and paprika. It's so easy to make but packs so much flavor. Once the pumpkin is done roasting, you drizzle the sauce over it, and it creates this creamy, tangy contrast to the sweetness of the pumpkin.
Honestly, this recipe is perfect for fall – it's warm and cozy, but also healthy and light. You can serve it as a side dish, or even as a light main course. And the best part is that it's gluten-free and vegetarian, so it's perfect for anyone with dietary restrictions. I highly recommend giving it a try!
