The biggest benefit of delicata squash is how easy it is to prepare. It's a small squash and you don't need to peel it. The peel soften while roasting and is best left on the squash since you may end up with very little left to roast if you do peel them. I found these squash at our farmers market and have also seen them at a co-op. I have never seen them in our regular grocery stores so they may not be the easiest item to find. If you ever find them buy a few and try them out.
6 small delicata squash (amount can easily be adjusted)
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to season
Preheat your oven to 425ºF/220ºC. Wash you squash and slice in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and slice the squash into half moons. On a baking sheet, toss the sliced squash with the oil and some salt and pepper. Roast for about 45 minutes, or until the squash softens. Flip the squash half way through baking.Pin It Now!
