Spicy Pumpkin Fries Recipe


I've always been a fan of sweet potato fries covered in spicy seasonings. This is a new favorite — much healthier than fries, as they are not truly "fried" but are baked instead.


  • 2 pounds pumpkin, peeled and cut into fry-shaped pieces about 2-3 inches long and ¼-½-inch thick*
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • Sprinkling of fresh black pepper


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Toss the pumpkin pieces with the remaining ingredients and arrange in 1 layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 30 minutes or until soft enough that a toothpick easily goes through.
