    Ingredients (use vegan versions):

    1 acorn squash
    sea salt
    cooking spray



Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Use a vegetable peeler and peel the squash. Cut it in half and scoop out all the seeds. Slice up the squash into 1/2 inch thick-ish slices, Slice them again if you want them in a more fry-style shape.

Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray, put the squash on the pan and sprinkle with the salt.

Bake for 35-40 minutes or till they get a lil browned.

These ended up tasting allot like regular potato fries, not all sweet like sweet potato fries. My roommates and I really liked them allot and they went great with ketchup and also with a dip recipe that I have on this site that's pretty much half Veganaise, half ketchup and some fajita seasoning. Yay for simple and yummy recipes! (that are actually good for you)

    I tried this tonight. It was really good! I would have never thought of cooking the squash this way, even though I cook summer squash similar to this. - 6/23/10

    Very tasty! We used seasoned salt instead of the sea salt and it was a nice added flavor. - 7/18/10

    I've done this one before! One of my favorites! Of course, any squash baked, grilled or cooked however you want to cook it gets my attention.

    The heat and time depends on the oven/grill of course. I always test my squash for "done-ness" but this is a great recipe!

    These were great. Easy to change up the seasonings. I found that if you cut the squash in half, then cut each half into 6 or so steak fry sized pieces, you can easily use a vegetable peeler to remove the skin. Definitely a keeper - 10/14/19
