A recipe! And don’t we love a recipe?
Well at least I do anyway
Last night, I attended a scrumptous launch for the cook book Supercharged Food. And boy was the food anything but sausage rolls and party pies. I have to say though – my hands wouldn’t stop gravitating to the Oven Roasted Pumpkin Chips. They were devine! Needless to say I was the girl at the food table devouring the bowl rather than making small talk. Woops.
When I managed to retract myself from the aformentioned bowl I asked Lee Holmes – author of Supercharged Food- to give me the recipe. Although I had my pen and paper ready, they were not necessary. Two ingredients – a little time and you have the makings of the coolest chip since Kale.
Get ready to eat a whole pumpkin in one sitting – I kid you not.
1/2 Small Pumpkin
Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Brushing
Preheat the overn to 150 degrees celcius. Cut the pumpkin into two or three chunks, then peel. Using a mandoline or the slicing blade on your food processor, cut the chunks into very thin slices, about 2 mm thick. Dry the slices on paper towels.
Place the pumpkin slices in a single layer on two lined baking trays. Brush with Olive Oil and sprinkle with a good pinch of sea salt. The salt helps draw moisture from the vegetables, so let them sit for 5 minutes before placing in the oven.
Bake the pumpklin for 25 minutes or until crisp.
Remove from the oven to cool completely. The slices will crisp as they cool. Keep in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
