Butternut Squash Seed Oil. The flavor reminds me of roasted pumpkin seeds and the oil is a dark rusty color. It's delicious and a fun alternative to olive oil.
For special oils like this it's best to keep it simple. I decided to try it on a straight forward batch of kale chips sprinkled with sea salt. The kale chips I've found in most markets and even high end juice bars are often loaded with odd spices that make them taste funny. These are classic and no fuss.
Kale Chips with Butternut Squash Oil & Sea Salt
1 bunch kale
1 tablespoon butternut squash seed oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2. Toss dry kale leaves with oil and salt in a large bowl. Rub oil mixture into the leaves so they are fully coated.
4. The chips are delicious right out of the oven or can be stored in an air tight container.
