Battered Fried Pumpkin


Happy Wednesday! Well... This was my lunch yesterday! Yummy Battered Fried Pumpkin.

It  takes just a few minutes to make and I know you will love it too...



Ingredients
1 1b pumpkin (peeled and cut into 1/2 inch wedges/squares)
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp scallion (finely chopped)
1 tsp thyme   (finely chopped)
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup water
Oil for frying

In a bowl, combine all dry ingredients (excepting pumpkin). Gradually add water and incorporate properly. Batter must be very thick. Dip slices of pumpkin into the batter and make sure each piece is properly covered with batter. Then shallow fry on  medium heat until golden brown ♥

Enjoy ♥

Love,
Summer

  1. Oh now I know what to do with the pumpkin I carve for Halloween. Ill scoop out enough to fry, bake the seeds and give the skin a hallowing effect.
    Thanks for the idea. Never heard of fried pumpkin.

  8. I love working with a whole pumpkin instead of just pumpkin puree. This sounds like a really great side dish or even dessert with some cinnamon sugar.

  14. This looks delicious, Summer! I don't think I've ever eaten pumpkin and I've certainly never cooked it but a friend said today that it makes the most delicious soup. Maybe pumpkin is something I should try! Thank you for your visit and your sweet comment - so glad you like my butterflies card!
