Why love this recipe? 

Carotenoids in butternut squash, known for their antioxidant properties, contribute to a robust immune system & reducing the risk of heart disease.  

Squash, garlic, & functional mushrooms contain prebiotic and starch-related elements that possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, detoxifying, and insulin-regulating qualities.

Butternut Squash Fries with Roasted Garlic Aioli ft. Balance



1 small Butternut Squash (peeled, cut into thick fries) 

1 Tbsp Avocado Oil 

1 tsp dried Rosemary 

1/4 tsp Sea Salt 

1 small Garlic Bulb 



1 large Egg (room temperature) 

½ cup Olive Oil (divided) 

1 tsp Lemon Zest 

½ tsp Balance functional mushroom blend by @eversiowellness  

3 Tbsp Lemon Juice (about ¼ lemon) 

⅛ tsp Sea Salt 




1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. 

2. Place the butternut squash fries on a roasting pan & sprinkle with rosemary, salt, and avocado oil. Toss to coat the fries, then arrange into a single, even layer (do not overcrowd the pan). 

3. Cut off the top of your garlic bulb so you can see the white part of the garlic, add a drop of olive oil, & wrap it in parchment paper. Put on the roasting pan with fries. 

4. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, flipping halfway through, or until the fries are cooked through and have browned on both sides.  

5. In a hand blender beaker (or blender), add egg, roasted garlic, lemon zest, Eversio mushroom powder, & about a ¼ cup of oil. Insert the hand blender so that it is touching the bottom of the beaker. Turn the blender on and blend until well combined. 

6. Now, slowly start adding the rest of the oil while the blender is on (you can move the blender sideways or up and down at this stage). After a while, aioli starts thickening and the more oil you add, the thicker it gets. 

7. When happy with its consistency, add lemon juice & salt. Mix and taste. Add more lemon juice or salt, if needed.  

Keep aioli refrigerated and use up within 3 days. 

Makes 2 servings of fries & ½ cup of aioli.
