Butternut Pumpkin And Rooibos Tea Recipe Instructions

  • 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon of Rooibos tea leaves
  • 2 medium butternut pumpkins
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh basil leaves
  • Pepper

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 F°.

  6. Cut into half inch thick slices.
  7. Oil your baking sheets lightly and place the sliced pumpkin on them. Leave space between each slice.
  8. Crush the left over tea leaves (if they aren't already crushed fine) and mix with salt.
  9. Use a basting brush to spread the infused butter over the tops of the slices.
  10. Season with pepper and the Rooibos tea / salt mixture.
  11. Bake for about 25 minutes or until soft.
  12. Place on a platter and garnish with basil.
