Upgrade your fries by trying these roasted butternut squash fries! Healthier than sweet potato fries but just as delicious!


  • 1 medium butternut squash
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spray a large baking pan with non-stick spray or line with a silicone baking mat.
  3. Peel the butternut squash and then slice it into thin planks.
  4. Toss in olive oil, sprinkle with salt and garlic powder, and spread in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, then flip the fries.
  6. Bake for another 8-10 minutes or until the fries begin to brown.
  7. Once they’ve browned up, they’ll start to get crispy and they’ll be ready to take out of the oven!
  8. Let cool for a few minutes before taking them off the pan.
  9. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
