Baked Pumpkin Fries with Ginger and Lime

These Baked Pumpkin Fries with Ginger and Lime are the ultimate autumnal side dish. So easy to make and truly delicious. I love to make them with Delicata or Hokkaido Pumpkins because there’s no need to peel the skin. They add a nice pop of colour and interest to the dinner table too.

The ginger and lime dressing is sugar and sweetener free so it’s great for those of you watching your sugar intake and the sesame and shelled hemp seeds add a nutty, crunchy texture to complement the soft, sweet pumpkin.

Serve with your favourite source of protein and dip. I love to dunk them in my Vegan Avocado Cream with crackling seeds. Have you tried it yet?

These Baked Pumpkin Fries are Vegan, Paleo, Keto, low-carb, Whole30 and Gaps friendly. For an AIP version, you can leave off the seeds and add more extra virgin olive oil to the dressing instead of the toasted sesame.

I hope you enjoy them.
