Simple Roasted Delicata Squash

Delicata squash is a type of winter squash. It’s super easy to prepare and makes a great side dish or salad topping! If you’re looking for a different way to eat squash, throw it on top of yogurt with some pomegranate seeds for a nutrient-rich breakfast!

Here’s how you roast it:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 435 degrees

  2. Wash the squash well! You’re going to be eating the skin. Rinse with warm water and give it a good scrub with a brush

  3. Cut off the ends of the squash

  4. Cut long ways down the center

  5. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon

  6. Cut eat half into thin slices. Think half-moon shape! Be sure all of the slices are the same size so they cook evenly

  7. Toss with avocado oil, salt and black pepper. Add a few dashes of cinnamon if you want. Spread evenly onto a lined baking sheet

  8. Roast the squash for about 30 minutes (flip over halfway)

  9. Serve right away! Delicata squash is best enjoyed warm
