Baked Delicata Squash Steak Fries

IMG_3927

A couple weeks ago we got some delicata squash from our CSA share. Neither of us had ever heard of it before, so they went straight into our basement refrigerator to wait for us to figure out what to do with them. Last Friday I decided it was time to try. I did an online search for recipes and stumbled across this recipe that bakes slivers of squash so they come out like steak fries (but better!).

I adapted the recipe a little by using olive oil instead of non-stick spray, since non-stick spray scares me. The results was better than I could have imagined. They are addictive. So much so that they were gone before I got to take a photo. We made them again last night and I managed to snap a couple to share with you.

Below is my adaptation of the recipe.

Baked Delicata Squash Steak Fries

Ingredients

1 Delicata Squash
Olive oil
Salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Cut the squash in half lengthwise and clean out the seeds with a spoon. Cut into long steak fry strips leaving the skin intact. They are surprisingly hard to cut through, so be careful.

Toss the squash strips with a little olive oil (just to coat lightly) and sprinkle with salt.

Bake for about 30 minutes turning once half way through.
