Butter(nut) Me Up Fries

Pin It!

Coconut is the new Ketchup.

Coconut butter + butternut squash fries = This is waaaaay better than tomato ketchup.

Sorry, tomatoes.

For the fries…

“Butter(nut) Me Up” Fries

  • 1 Butternut Squash
  • a sprinkle of salt
  • cinnamon (optional, but awesome)
  • Cut the squash into fry shapes (use a fry cutter or a knife)
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F
  • Put the fries and spices into a big Ziploc-type bag and mix
  • Line a baking sheet with tin foil, then spray with a tiny bit of Pam. (Wipe with a paper towel so it’s even on the foil.) Spread your fries on the baking sheet and shove ‘em in the oven
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your fries, and depending on how many fries you put on the baking sheet.

Not missing from the equation were the ever-present chopsticks.

Math Time!

Other good coconut butter combinations: muffins + coconut butter, carrots + coconut butter, anything + coconut butter… There’s almost no wrong answer! Now that’s the kind of math they should be teaching in schools. It’ll be first on the agenda when I become president.


Watch your back, Mr. Obama

It’s a lofty goal, setting my sights on Commander in Chief.  Naturally, I have a back-up career plan.

With liberty and cupcakes for all…

    Real life? What is this nonsense? I assume you live only to serve us, your loyal readers! J/k obvs…

    I love coconut, but I think I might be developing an allergy to it, which does not make me happy at all! But I’m in the midst of an elimination diet (day 2 of a smoothie cleanse…I’m sso hungry!), so hopefully I’ll find out that coconut is fine for me.

  3. Jessica says:

    Ohhhh I LOVE coconut. So yummy. And I really like this header! I am loving the colors.

  4. Oh Katie, you know I am always your biggest supporter but, I’m afraid, this post is where you and I must part ways. I loathe coconut. Seriously. I will eat anything, really, anything and usually like it. But coconut will never pass these lips! It does LOOK pretty, though, especially on all those fries.

    Have no fear, I will still vote for you when you start your run for the White House. Yay for Vegan in Chief!

  5. coconut butter is terrific with sweet potatoes and on breads and stuff.
    the title is nice. i think it takes a long while to find anything that fits..might title is was a whim decision…whatever, it is what is…just words 🙂

    Hi Katie –

    I like the new header! It is colourful and creative. 🙂
    And I am making more of your Butternut Fries tonight to use up half a butternut squash leftover from last night’s supper. Mmmm… I am going to the big health foods store in the city today so if I can find coconut butter I will definitely give it a try too.
