Spicy Acorn Squash Chips or Fries or Crisps

Follow Me on Pinterest

Finally I got back my cooking mojo. I tried out an inspired acorn squash, chips/fries thing. I have made acorn squash soups before, but I wanted to try making a baked chips like thing. It came out awesome!

The Ingredients:

1 Acorn squash
garam masala
aamchur (mango seed powder, which is available in most Indian stores)
chili powder
organic, extra virgin, cold pressed coconut oil (or whichever you prefer)


Pre-heat oven to 400F
Peel the acorn squash
Cut it in half, remove the seeds
Cut the acorn in as thin strips as possible
Make sure that you get about the same size so that they all cook at same rate
Take a large pizza pan or similar and cover it with foil.
Melt the coconut oil and mix the garam masala, red chili powder, salt and amchur into the coconut oil.
Throw the acorn squash slices into the oil to coat it.
Alternately, you can simply dribble coconut oil over the slices and then sprinkle everything else on top.
Place the coated squash slices on the pan and put it in the oven.
Bake for about 40 minutes or more. Since oven times varies, I would start with the timer set at 20 minutes and see how it goes.
