Baked Butternut Squash/Pumpkin Fries

Yum yum, french fries. Yum yum, pumpkin fries. Yum yum, butternut squash fries.

Baked Butternut Squash/Pumpkin Fries
Ingredients: Butternut squash/pumpkin sliced uniformly (the thicker you slice, the longer it takes to bake), salt and fresh ground pepper, pinch of cumin and fennel seeds, some olive oil and butter

1. Lay the sliced butternut squash/pumpkin on a "lightly buttered" foil and toss evenly in salt, pepper, cumin and fennel seeds
2. Bake10-15mins in preheated oven ~180-200degC (Note: bake time depends on thickness of slices, so make sure the thickness is uniform so that the fries get cooked evenly)
3. Before serving, you can add a small cube of butter on the pumpkin fries for richer taste. It is optional, really!
