I am avoiding potatoes as I’m trying to follow the specific carbohydrate diet and was looking for an alternative to delicious regular homemade chips. Sweet potatoes work well but I wanted to try something new. Butternut squash slices are perfect. They cook in a hot oven in 25-30 mins and taste delicious.
Butternut squash chips-
Butternut squash slices ( I found these in Waitrose ) or whole squash
Beef dripping / virgin cold pressed coconut oil ( I use lucybee )
dried or fresh rosemary
pre heat fan oven 200c
slice the pre sliced squash into chip size pieces
melt beef dripping or coconut oil in roasting tray for a few minutes
carefully add the squash chips to the hot pan
sprinkle fresh or dried rosemary on the chips
use a spatula to turn the chips over to coat them in fat
pop back in the oven
roast for 25 mins in a very hot oven
turn once during cooking time
drain on kitchen roll sprinkle with coarse salt
serve and enjoy!
