This is a lovely, colourful vegetarian salad, perfect when you need an inspiring recipe for all those winter root vegetables.


  • 2 butternut (approximately 8 cups when cut up)
  • 2 teaspoon(s) curry powder
  • 2 teaspoon(s) garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon(s) onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cut the butternut in half, lengthwise, and remove all seeds. Use a potato peeler to remove butternut skins.

Step 2

Using a very sharp knife, cut pumpkins into 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick strips to resemble French Fries. Put the ‘Fries’ in a bowl with the olive oil and add the spices. Toss by hand until well coated. Arrange the fries, single layered, on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes or until butternut is soft.
