A great alternative to deep-fried potatoes. These fries are slightly sweet, slightly spicy and oven-baked for a nice roasted flavor.

Ingredients

olive oil cooking spray

3 spray(s)

uncooked butternut squash

1 pound(s), peeled, seeded, long “neck” cut into sixteen 3/4-inch-thick sticks*

table salt

1 tsp, or to taste

chili powder

½ tsp, or to taste (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Arrange squash fries on prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and chili powder; liberally coat with cooking spray.
  3. Roast, turning once, until desired crispness, about 14 to 18 minutes. Yields 4 fries per serving.

Notes

*Start with a large squash. You will end up using about 1 lb of squash and have the “bulb” of the squash left over. Any hard winter squash will work in this recipe.Double or triple the recipe to meet your needs.
