A fabulous dish when pumpkins are at their peak, this recipe is a flavorful way to add healthy lutein and beta-carotene to your diet.


  • 1 2 pound pumpkin peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • ¾ cup wild rice
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
  • 1 bunch fresh chopped thyme
  • 3 Tablespoons dried breadcrumbs
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pinch freshly grated nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Oil a 7 x 9-inch baking dish.
  • Place pumpkin cubes in a large bowl. Scatter the wild rice, cheese, flour, and garlic over the top. Sprinkle with thyme, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Toss all of the ingredients together, making sure the pumpkin cubes are well coated. Top with breadcrumbs and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Bake until pumpkin is tender when pierced with tip of a knife and top is golden brown, about 30 minutes. If the top has not browned sufficiently, raise oven temperature, to 425 degrees and back another few minutes.
  • Remove from oven and serve hot.
