Baked Butternut Fries

So simple, yet so yummy. I could eat a whole batch of these fries and feel no guilt whatsoever. What more can you ask for? Perfect for the “most wonderful time of the year” (AKA the most pull-your-hair-out-crazy time of the year). Finals, papers, a speech (superior autobiographical memory, anyone?), and a new job. I rather just do the shopping and forget about everything else. So yes, simplicity is very much needed right now. Not to mention, I find that cutting up a squash is a healthy way to release my pent-up frustrations 🙂

Baked Butternut Fries 

Ingredients:

1 medium butternut squash

1 tbsp olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Place the oven rack on the lowest level and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut butternut squash into fry-like pieces (I always leave the skin on) and place in a large bowl. Add olive oil and toss. Layer baking pans with parchment paper. Place squash fries in a single layer and add salt and pepper. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until the level of crispiness is achieved.

  1. Very cute idea. Btw, I tried your avocado nuggets last week… they were a hit with the meat lover boyfriend. 🙂
