Recipe

For me, there can never enough options for simple oven fries.  I love them all -  from the classic oven baked or sweet potato fry to the green bean fry to the zucchini fry to the celery root fry.  You get the idea.  So in my quest to make all things into fries, I whipped up these simple squash fries  few nights back and loved them.  I used butternut squash but an acorn, kabocha, or delicata squash would work as well.   From there, season them up with your favorite spices, and bake until crispy.  I like the combination of smoky cumin and paprika with squash because its naturally sweet, but any spice combo will work.

Notes

If you don't have 40 minutes to cook them, microwave them first for 6-8 minutes until they are tender. Then toss with the olive oil and spices and place on a preheated baking sheet. Roast for 10-15 minutes and you have crispy fries in less time.
