This week I decided to focus on the butternut squash. I often cut up squash and roast it, but I don't often get particularly inventive with it - it's usually just served in cubes at the side of a meal. So this time I decided to do something a little different, and recreate one of my favourite snacks, crisps - only this time, I went a bit healthier!
Lately I've really been enjoying trying to find healthier alternatives to a bag of greasy fried crisps. My salt and vinegar roasted cauliflower for example, was absolutely delicious - but if you fancy something a bit closer to the real thing, try these smoky butternut squash crisps. Compared to potatoes, butternut squash has fewer calories, more fibre, and a lot more of vitamins A and C - so it's a great healthier alternative to crisps.
You can add whatever flavours you fancy to your butternut squash crisps - I went for smoked paprika, which is my favourite spice of all time, and which I think goes really well with the sweetness of the butternut squash. They were even better dipped in a hot and spicy salsa!
