Move over potatoes, there’s a new fry in town! These Delicata Squash Fries with Lemon-Garlic Aioli by Kate Friedman are a tasty twist on one of America’s food darlings. Baking the squash instead of frying makes it much healthier. Salting the squash before roasting it draws out the moisture, allowing the fries to crisp up in the oven. These squash fries are wonderful on their own but they’re especially good paired with lemon-garlic aioli.
