Acorn squash oven baked fries

Updated: Apr 27, 2019

A tasty and nutritious alternative to oven baked fries if you're looking to change things up a little bit!



Disclaimer: acorn squash is harder to cut than sweet potato. Watch your fingers! I find it easiest to cut using a knife that has ridges (like this).


Ingredients:

  • 1 acorn squash

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with tinfoil.

  2. Cut top and bottom off of the acorn squash, then cut it in half along one of the "seams". Using a spoon, remove seeds and pulp. Cut squash into wedges along remaining seams then use a vegetable peeler to remove peel. Cut each wedge into 3-4 smaller wedges - watch your fingers!

  3. Put acorn squash into a large bowl and add olive oil, garlic powder, and paprika then mix well.

  4. Arrange acorn squash slices on prepared baking sheet in a single layer, then sprinkle with sea salt.

  5. Bake for 20 minutes, then test that fries are done by piercing with a fork - the fork shouldn't encounter any resistance. If they aren't quite done yet, return to the oven or another 2-5 minutes until cooked through. There is no need to flip these during baking.
