Start by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat your oven to 400° Fahrenheit.
Cut the ends off your butternut squash. Use a Y shaped peeler or pairing knife (I prefer the pairing knife) to peel the skin off. Then, cut squash into half lengthwise and remove the seeds.
Cut the halves into long thin strips, slicing from top to bottom. Then, cut the strips shorter until you have shoestring like fries. Place in a large mixing bowl.
Add your avocado oil, smoked paprika, salt and pepper to your bowl. Toss to coat. Then, spread the fries out evenly on your parchment lined baking sheet.
Place in the oven and cook for 35-45 minutes until they start to brown and the edges get crispy. Remove about halfway through cooking and toss fries around before putting back into oven to finish cooking.
Once done remove from the oven. Serve hot, and dip in favorite sauces.
