This is a simple alternative to traditional fries that taste great, and are great for you. I will spare you the superfood spiel on the health benefits of butternut squash, (unless you’re curious … in which case read more here).
1 butternut squash
Fresh ground salt
Fresh ground black pepper
2 tsp ground Chipotle chili powder
1 tbsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Peel butternut squash and remove seeds, slice into fry size pieces ,about an inch thick. Keeping thickness consistent will help ensure even cooking. In a mixing bowl add olive oil and seasonings, and toss to coat. Spread the squash in one even layer on a foil lined baking sheet.
3. Bake for approx. 20 minutes, flipping halfway through, until edges are browned and slightly crispy. Toss with fresh chopped cilantro, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
4. Serve immediately. — China Moss
