Often French fries are made using potatoes but that's not the case with this innovative homemade fry recipe made using freshly sliced pumpkin instead. These gourd fries are also cleverly baked making them a healthy alternative to the popular fast food side.
Pumpkins are an extremely versatile fruit with subtle flavors that can be incorporated into both sweet and savory dishes. These homemade fries ingeniously use the pumpkin flesh to create matchstick fries that are seasoned with paprika, garlic powder, parsley, salt and freshly grated parmesan cheese to give them a crispy and cheesy texture. Despite being made of pumpkin, these fries retain their shape and tenderness despite being baked. This would be a great wholesome side to serve along with a variety of meals during the autumnal season when pumpkins are plentiful.
