A great side dish to accompany lamb or deer bus also served as a vegetarian dish I can recommend the oven baked pumpkin with coriander seeds. The Coriander and the Cayenne Pepper give the muskat pumpkin a lot of flavor. You can bake the pumpkin with the peel, that makes this recipe very time efficient.
