Ingredients

  • 14 ounces raw butternut squash peeled, de-seeded and chopped into fry shape (weighed on my food scale)
  • 1/2 teaspoon course sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • parchment paper
  • baking sheet

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Peel, de-seed and slice up your butternut squash into finger-sized fries. They don't have to be perfect, but try to keep the size fairly consistent.
  3. Place the squash slices in a mixing bowl, along with the oil, salt, pepper and paprika.
  4. Toss to coat.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Arrange the squash on the baking sheet, and bake until they start to crisp, for about 35 minutes.
  7. Serve immediately.
