Pumpkin Wedges

Enjoy richly roasted but very-low-calorie-dense pumpkin wedges (only about 35 calories per serving) with this recipe, perfect for just about anything, from a mid-day snack to a side dish star for Thanksgiving Dinner.
Course: Vegetarian
Cuisine: American, Vegan, Vegetarian
Yield: 12 people


  • 1 medium-sized pumpkin (about 5 pounds)
  • 1 generous pinch cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon frozen apple juice concentrate thawed


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Peel pumpkin the same way you would peel melons like honeydew. Cut off top and bottom so that pumpkin "stands" steady on your surface. To keep pumpkin from moving, a wet towel underneath is helpful. Then, going from top to bottom with a sharp knife, filet the skin off. Next, cut pumpkin into long wedges. Remove pulp and seeds.
  • Season your wedges with cinnamon and apple juice concentrate.
  • On a large nonstick baking sheet, bake for 25 minutes or until browned.
  • Serve hot.


Look for 100% apple juice concentrate in the frozen food section of your market.
