Looking for something different, lean but with a great taste? What about trying fries made from Hokkaido pumpkin?
Hokkaido pumpkin is a great substitute for sweet potato with only 8.8 g carbs per 100g. For reference, sweet potato has 20 carbs per 100g.
These Hokkaido pumpkin fries are super easy to make!
We used our airfryer to cook them, but you can also cook them in the oven at 200ºC/ 400ºF.
What you need to make Hokkaido pumpkin fries:
- One Hokkaido pumpkin
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Airfryer or oven
What to do:
- Preheat your airfryer or oven (hot air) at 200ºC/400ºF
- Cut the pumpkin in half
- Remove the seeds with a spoon
- Peel of the skin, we use a cooking knife to cut off piece by piece
- Cut it in equal-sized pieces, about 1cm thick
- But on some olive oil and seasoning, we went for chill-powder and salt
- Fry them in an airfryer for the best result. You can do it in the oven as well, use high temperature and hot air mode
How to serve:
We served the fries with chicken and some salt on top, but it can be served with anything you’d like!
