- 1 medium butternut squash
- 2 tsp Chosen Foods 100% Pure Avocado Oil
- 2 tsp organic garlic salt
- 2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup 100% Pure Avocado Oil
- 1 lemon juice
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 tsp raw honey
- 2-3 cloves garlic peeled
- 1/4 tsp ground chipotle powder
- 1/4 tsp sweet paprika
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 425Peel the squash with a vegetable peeler. Cut the squash in half where the long section meets the bulb-like section. Cut the bulb-like section in half and scrape out the seeds. Cut all the squash up into 1/2" thick fries.
Place the cut fries in a large zip-top bag with the avocado oil, garlic salt, and pepper. Seal the bag and massage it with your hands to coat the fries well. Arrange the fries onto a cooling rack set over a baking sheet (the space beneath the cooling rack will allow for circulating air and a crispier fry).
Cook for 30-40 minutes, removing the pan halfway through to turn all the fries over. Fries will be golden brown. Sprinkle with flaked sea salt and serve immediately with the Spiced Avocado Oil Aioli.
