Fall squash are some of my favorites but I have to admit, peeling them often keeps me from enjoying them. If you're like me your dying to dig into the Delicata Squash. A delicious, flavorful fall (winter) squash that requires no peeling. Simply clean, cut, seed and roast. It doesn't get much better than that. Enjoy!
What you need:
2 - 4 Delicata squash (about 1 1/2 pounds depending on the size
2 Tbls olive oil
Sea salt to taste
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Clean the squash with a sponge under running water. Cut lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.
Cut each half of the squash into 1 1/2" pieces, this will give you half-moon shapes. Arrange pieces on a baking sheet and lightly brush with oil. Salt gently
Place in oven and bake for 10 minutes. Using a spatula flip the delicata pieces and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Poke with a fork upon taking out of the oven. The squash should be tender, if not fully cooked, flip the pieces one last time and bake an additional 5 minutes.
