Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • One small sugar pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Peel pumpkin, scoop out seeds and strings and then cut into fry shapes - about ⅓ of an inch thick. Toss in oil. Place on a wire rack on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes at top of oven. Then, remove from oven and turn fries over. Return to oven and bake another 15 minutes of so, until fries are fork tender and browned and crispy.
  3. Stir together the smoked paprika, cumin and salt.
  4. Remove fries from oven and sprinkle with spice mixture.
  5. Serve immediately.
  6. (NOTE: Fries tend to get soggy if they sit too long, so eat them right out of the oven - for rave reviews!)
