I wanted to find something that my kids would try and hopefully like. Pumpkin Fries! (See my next post for the Pumpkin Curry Soup recipe.)
|Spicy Seasonings, Cinnamon Seasonings, and Herb Seasonings|
|Left: Spicy Fries. Top Right: Herb Fries. Bottom Right: Cinnamon Fries|
The star of the dinner was the cinnamon fries. They were really really good and kids asked for third helpings of them.
Thanks for the great challenge Phyl!
Recipe proportions are for 1/3 of a pumpkin.
1 small pumpkin
Adapted From: Aaplemint
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
Pinch black pepper
Adapted From: Sarah's Cucina Bella
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sage
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp parsley
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Peel pumpkin. I found it easiest to use a knife to cut the skin off rather than a peeler. Open pumpkin and clean out. Cut pumpkin into fry strips.
3. Prepare fry seasonings. Again, recipe proportions are for 1/3rd of a small pumpkin. If only making one kind of fry, increase seasoning proportions.
4. Toss fries and seasonings with olive oil (about 1 Tbs).
5. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.
