Cheesy & Herby Crispy Butternut Squash Fries a.k.a. These Fries Over Everything!

Hi babes!

Who needs potato when you’ve got butternut squash?

Potatoes are a great source of carbs when eaten in moderation & also rich in certain vitamins + minerals. But, butternut squash is where it’s at if you want to load up on fibre, vitamin C + antioxidants while still getting your French fries fix! Basically, it’s a best of both worlds situation!

When it comes to fries, it’s all about nailing the slicing + baking technique more than it is about seasonings! I like to keep seasonings simple & roast them to perfection so they’re crispy, thin, crunchy & full of that charred flavour!

Serve these as is, as a side dish with your fave burger or chicken sandwich, in bowls or as a healthier alternative to French fries in homemade poutine!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 butternut squash, peeled & sliced into thin French fries
  • 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast (or Parmesan)
  • 2 tsp. dried parsley flakes
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp. sea salt, depending how salty you like your fries
  • 1/4 cup raw organic apple cider vinegar or avocado oil

TO MAKE:

  • Preheat the oven to 425F & line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Add the fries to a large mixing bowl & season with the spices & apple cider. Toss to coat.

  • Place the fries on the baking sheet in a single layer.

  • ENJOY!
