Pumpkin for Dinner: Recipe for October/Halloween

It's nearly Halloween!! Time to plan our scary outfits, think of cool make up, decorate our houses, drink hot chocolates by the fire, waiting for our hair to dry from the rain and time to carve some pumpkins. However, pumpkins can also be made into a delecious dinner following the next recipe.
Feel free to alter some things to your liking, this is just how I made my dinner.

Halloween Dinner (Pumpkin and Couscous)
For 4 people

1 small pumpkin
200 gr Couscous
120 gr Snow Peas
100 gr Raisins
Olive oil
Lemon juice
Chicken Bouillon Cube

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
Step 2: Cut the pumpkin into little squares. This is harder than it looks, so please be carefull. Put them on a baking tray and sprinkle them with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Put the tray in the oven. Leave the pumpkin in for about 20 minutes.
Step 3: Make a dressing out of half a teaspoon of sambal, the leaves of 6 stems of mint, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, 1 1/2 tablespoons of honey and 4 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix it well.
Step 4: Boil 400 ml water and add half of the chicken bouillon cube, once the cube is dissolved, add the couscous. Use the instructions on the packaging, because they may vary.
Step 5: Cook the Snow Peas, when they're done, rinse with cold water and cut into smaller pieces.
Step 6: When the couscous is ready, stir with a fork to loosen it up. Add the snow peas and the raisins.
Step 7: Put the couscous on a plate and sprinkle the dressing on top. Add the pumpkin and your done. Enjoy your Halloween Pumpkin dinner!
