Simple Sunday

With New Years around the corner you may be thinking about your health or diet. With that in mind I thought I would share a simple, and healthy snack for the whole family.

We all know that kids love anything with the word fry, right? Well, here is a healthy fry option you can make at home, without the use of a deep fryer.

BUTTERNUT SQUASH FRIES

1. Pre heat oven to 450 degrees.

2. Peel butternut squash and slice into strips. Thick is perfect for these, think country style fries. (this is also the most time consuming part)

3. Toss with 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil and 1 tsp seasoned salt until well coated.

4. Spread out on baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, turning halfway through.

I make this version when I am planning on sharing with my kids. However, if you like spice, substitute 1/2 tsp each of black pepper, cayenne, cumin, and salt for the tsp of seasoned salt. You could mix it up even more with any of your favorite seasonings. I have even used an herb seasoning.

Baking time may vary baised on your own tastes. I suggest sampling to determine their “done-ness”, but there may not be any left to share when they are “done”.

You could also substitue sweet potatoes, and/or bake them in a toaster oven.

Enjoy!

Gwen
