If you saw my recipe for the Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers from last week, then you’re going to love this recipe for Butternut Squash Fries! We all love a good burger and fries, and these recipes remove any guilt!
Butternut squash is high in nutrients including vitamins A and C, potassium and magnesium. Butternut squash makes an excellent alternative to potatoes and can be used in a variety of recipes. With garlic powder and just a dash of cayenne, these delicious fries have a savory, spicy kick!
1 large Butternut Squash
¼ cup of Olive Oil
1 Tbsp. Garlic Powder
1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper (optional)
Sea Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
2. Cut the ends off the squash, peel the skin, cut the squash in half, de-seed, then cut into “fry” sticks.
3. Place fries in a mixing bowl and coat with oil and seasonings.
4. On a greased baking sheet (or on parchment paper), arrange fries in a single layer.
5. Roast for 30-35 minutes or until golden and crisp.
