Submitted by: BANKRUPTVEGAN
Baked Butternut Squash

Introduction

These baked "fries" are delicious, and abundantly nutritious. Plus, they're easy to make - and it's really fun to dig into a weird looking squash. These baked "fries" are delicious, and abundantly nutritious. Plus, they're easy to make - and it's really fun to dig into a weird looking squash.

Ingredients

    1 large butternut squash, peeled and sliced into "fries"
    1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    Pinch of chili powder
    Dash of cayenne (optional)
    Salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Use a vegetable peeler to carefully peel the rind from the squash. Keep peeling until all the little green lines have disappeared.
Cut the squash in half lengthwise and use a metal spoon to scoop out the seeds and all that other goopy stuff.
Now, cut the neck off of the squash and cut large wedges, as equal in size as possible.
You can do the same with the "bowls" of the squash or you can save those for another recipe. Stuffed butternut squash, anyone?
Toss your wedges and spices into a large bowl that has a tight-fitting lid.
Secure the lid and shake the wedges around until they are all well-coated.
Place in a single layer on a large, lightly-oiled baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes. Flip the fries over, and bake another 10-15 minutes, until outside is crisp and inside is soft.
