As Rach says, we all have a lot of pumpkins and gourds on hand as we transition from Thanksgiving to Hanukkah and Christmas. Here's one idea for what to do with them. It's a roasted take on regular French fries that uses a small pumpkin, which makes enough for four adults. She seasons them with spices, Parm, parsley and coarse sea salt and serves them with her Florentine Turkey Melts and Roasted Tomato & Pepper Soup. Yum!
Pro Tip: Soaking the raw cut fries in water makes them crispier.
Preheat the oven to 450°F.
For the spice blend, combine the spices in a small bowl.
Soak pumpkin fries 30 minutes in water, drain and pat dry.
Line a baking sheet with foil and parchment, add fries and coat with oil, spice blend and cornstarch, then toss together and arrange in single layer. (Or, toss together in a zip-top bag.) Roast 20 minutes, turning once midway.
Combine the cheese, parsley and salt in large metal bowl, add hot fries and toss to coat, then serve.
