Butternut Squash Fries

Test Kitchen: Getting wild with some safe starches and Guacamole.

I have been on such a vegetable kick as of late. I love my meat…but it’s just so nice closing off the end of the day with a plate of greens. They are easy to digest, supply the body with loads of fiber and give you that sense of vitality. The feeling often eluded when we sit down to an 8oz. steak or burger.

The Guacamole is the same as in the Guacamole Hack: So I’m going to save the ink and dive right into my roasted butternut squash fries.

 

What You’ll Need in the Kitchen:

Ingredients:

  • 1 Butternut Squash 
  • Avocado Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • 1.5 cups of shredded Kale
  • 1 Lime or Lime Juice

Directions:* Pre Heat the over to 425 degrees

 

1.With a sharp knife cut and deseed a large Butternut Squash. Slice off the stem and bottom ends of the squash so that both ends are flat. Slice the squash in half, just where the thinner end begins to widen around the middle. Turn each half so that a flat end rests against the cutting board. Use a sharp serrated peeler or paring knife to peel off the skin in downward strokes. Then cut into fries.

Option Two: Buy these because of time, efficiency and we all like “a little bit of lazy.”

 

2.Cover a Bake tray with parchment paper. Add your fries and 1.5 cups of shredded Kale (trust me you are going to love the extra crunch.) Drizzle 2 tablespoons of avocado oil over everything and add 1 teaspoon of pink sea salt. I try to bake with avocado oil these days because of it’s high smoke point and versatility in high heat just to be safe. Looking to deepen your knowledge of cooking oils in the kitchen and upgrade the fasts you are using? here is a definitive oil guide from my buddy Mark Sission.

*Truth be told, I don’t know Mark but he’s one of the Godfathers of Paleo and a trusted and integrity-filled dude. 

3. Add the sheet to the oven and bake for about 40 minutes. You are going to want to flip your fries halfway through with a spatula. A golden brown / dark-edged fry is what you are looking for as the end result. Please note the Trader Joes’ option is going to cook much faster, as quick as 25-30 minutes due to the crinkle cut.

4. Dress these over a base of Guacamole from last weeks blog and you are good to go.

Quick review:

  • 1.5 Organic Avocados
  • 3 large Romain Heart leaves
  • 1/2 cup of organic spinach
  • 2 limes (juiced)
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Olive oil 2 tablespoons.

Add everything to a food processor or (Vitamix on low) and whip to perfection. Boom.

Finish by Squeezing one fresh lime over the whole bowl for zing and added digestive power. Healthy Fats, a hearty meal, and fries not cooked in a deep fryer. Everybody wins.

Remember the world needs you at your best. That’s going to happen through an upgrade in food, functional fitness, high vibration living and an expanded view of the world. One brick at a time and let’s build a world we can all be proud of. Namaste my friends.
