Roasted spiced pumpkin slices

A delicious snack on its own or as a salad or side...I can't get enough of it
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 45 mins


  • Baking tray


  • 1 Pumpkin cut into 1.5 cm slices (like a melon)
  • 1 tbsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp dried chilli flakes
  • drizzle olive oil
  • Salt & pepper


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Slice the pumpkin into 1-2cm pieces thick. Too thin and  the pumpkin crisps and burns too much and too thick and you don't get the crisp you want it can even go soggy
  • Drizzle with olive oil on a lined baking tray and then sprinkle liberally with the herbs and salt & pepper the roast in oven until you have a good colour (approx 45-1 hour depending on your thickness)
  • Serve as is, warm with Persian feta sprinkled over the top (even some pomegranate on top) and freshly chopped parsley. When I serve with drinks I add a little Persian feta on top and people can take a slice from the tray
