Ingredients

  • 1 butternut squash or other hard squash, like acorn squash.
  • Salt (to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Carefully remove the peel with a sharp knife or peeler.
  3. Remove any seeds with a spoon.
  4. Cut the squash into long, thin rectangular pieces (like fries).
  5. Cover pieces in a liberal amount of salt and let them sit for 10–15 minutes.
  6. Then soak pieces in a bowl of water for up to 30 minutes. If needed, you can let them sit and soak overnight.
  7. Drain the water; pat them very dry.
  8. Toss with coconut oil.
  9. Lay them on a baking sheet and season with sea salt or your favorite seasoning.
  10. Bake for 10 minutes; flip the fries over with a spatula and bake for another 10 minutes so both sides get browned.
  11. The fries are done when they brown on the edges. You want them crispy, not soggy.
