fall meals

Food Friday: Delicata Squash Fries


Last weekend at the farmers market I felt like a kid in a candy store with all the amazing fall produce out! I am extra excited when I find delicata squash, my favourite fall squash that only comes out at this time of year. I already wrote about how I use it in my favourite Moroccan Fall Stew, but here is a quick and delicious way to eat them. I made these fries for a big brunch over the weekend and they were definitely a hit. Delicata squash have very thin skin so you don't need to peel them. They are also a bit sweet like other squash so they pair nicely with a little spice or curry. Enjoy!


  • 2 delicata squash 
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt, or to taste
  • 4 tbsp mayo 
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F and line a baking tray with parchment paper. 
  2. Half the squash lengthwise and scrap out seeds with a spoon. Slice squash into 1/2 inch half moons. Toss squash with olive oil and salt and spread out on baking tray. 
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes on each side until slightly golden. 
  4. Meanwhile while baking, mix mayo with curry powder lemon and pinch of sea salt. 
  5. Serve squash with the side of curry mayo for dipping. Delicious!

In health & happiness,
