I guess that is not that uncommon a statement. I mean…who doesn’t like fries? They are salty, crispy little strips of deliciousness. Mmmm fries.
When I want to make fries at home I like to get creative. While I will always hold a special place in my heart for the traditional french fry, unfortunately they are not something you should eat everyday. I am sorry…you just shouldn’t.
That is the beauty of butternut squash fries. You could eat them everyday. No really, it’s true! They might be the most perfect fry vegetable. They have a great natural sweetness and you don’t even need oil to make them. You have to cut them in strips and bake! What could be easier!
Local Ingredient: Organic butternut squash (purchased from a local farm store).
Use a medium sized butternut squash.
Peel the squash.
Cut into fry shape pieces and place on a baking sheet.
