I’m a Paleo eater. Basically. (Because ice cream, wine, and chocolate aren’t Paleo and I’m gonna eat/drink those anyway!) Which means it’s been years since I’ve had French fries. Like, seriously. No fries with my burgers.
So when a friend suggested Delicata squash as a substitute, swearing that when oven roasted it tasted just like fries, I have to admit I was pretty skeptical. Squash that tasted like fries? Did. Not. Compute.
But of course I had to try it.
After cleaning, seeding, and cutting into wedges, I poured olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic granules on it. Baked at 400 degrees until done. Then… try to stop yourself from eating just a couple…. I SWEAR THEY TASTE LIKE FRENCH FRIES!
Skeptical? Don’t take my word for it – try it yourself!
Happy Food and Wine Wednesday,
One thought on “Would You Like Fries With That?”
You had me at “taste like french fries”. 🙂 I’ll be trying this my dear! I’m mostly off any nightshades (which are all the good things, yes?), so really miss my fries. I’ll give it a go this weekend Melia! ~Viola
