This recipe, which uses pumpkin as a party finger food, is fast, easy and tastes good. It comes from the website Jungle Frog Cooking. I think it would be just fine as a side dish too. It mixes soy sauce, honey and sesame oil as a marinade for the pumpkin, which is then baked in the oven. The skewers are optional. I was the only taster on this and thought it tasted great.
