It’s been about 2-3 years since I’ve had any type of potatoes, but luckily I was never all that crazy for potatoes to begin with. I would occasionally crave some french fries, but after a few months, the craving and thought of even eating them went away, until last week. For some odd reason I just wanted fries, but being on the GAPS, potatoes aren’t allowed. So, I decided to think of another starchy vegetable, which brought me to butternut squash.
Butternut squash has the same like texture to a potato peeled and raw and the same sort of texture when it’s cooked. So, I figured it was a good candidate. 🙂
These fries tasted really good, almost like sweet potato fries. My youngest sister and I ate two trays full of these delicious fries, in a matter of 10 minutes. She called for the last fry too, haha! I was pretty impressed with how much she liked them, being that she eats regular fries multiple times a week.
So that means you need to set the potatoes aside for a while and give butternut squash a chance! You won’t be disappointed. Plus, the average American (and probably everyone around the world) eats more potatoes than butternut squash, so it’s good to get vitamins from that source.
1 butternut squash
