My Weird Guilty Pleasure… Roast Pumpkin

I am the world’s biggest snacker.

When I’m studying from home and all I want to do is eat and not work.

i’ve found that making a snack that’s a little more filling gives my stomach the satisfaction it needs, and stops me from eating a thousand calorie-dense snacks all day.

A staple snack I make (you can also use this as a side for dinner/lunch) is roast pumpkin bites. After pre-heating the oven to 200˚C (400˚F) all I do is peel and chop up about 1/3 of a pumpkin into bite sized pieces. Then I lay them out on a tray that’s lined with baking paper, and drizzle some extra virgin olive oil over the top.

Next, I season them with a sprinkle of thyme, basil, salt and paprika and then chuck on a handful of chopped walnuts.

Then, I slide them into the oven for 30 minutes.

This is a delicious little snack that stops all the cravings for food and it only takes about 10 minutes to prepare.

It’s so delicious and easy if you haven’t you should definitely give it a go.

What’s your guilty pleasure?
