Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 35 mins


  • 1 large butternut squash about 2 pounds/860 grams
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil melted
  • 3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh dill
  • salt to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut the bottom off of the butternut squash so you have an easy cutting surface. Use a sharp knife
  • or a peeler to remove the skin of the butternut squash. Cut the squash in half, remove the seeds,
  • and cut into fry-size strips.
  • Toss the fries in a large bowl with the coconut oil, dill, and salt. Place fries on the prepared
  • baking sheet, making sure not to overlap in order to keep the fries cooking evenly.
  • Bake for 35 minutes, or until tender on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Remove from the
  • baking sheet and place on a cooling rack to help retain their crunch. Eat while still warm.
