Simple recipe for a sweet delicata squash. Very easy to make. We got a bunch in our CSA this year and had never tried them before. I made this for a Thanksgiving side.


1-2 delicata squash

1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2-1 cup walnuts or pecans

1-2 tbs maple syrup

1 tbs olive oil

Step 1: Cut Squash

Preheat oven to 400.

Wash the squash well and then split in half and scoop out the insides. Slice the squash in 1/2 inch slices and arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet.

You don't need to pre-soften this squash, it's not as tough as butternut and the skin is edible.

Step 2: Sweeteners

Mix the brown sugar, olive oil, and maple syrup (and nuts if wanted) together in a bowl. Next you can either toss the squash slices into the bowl or drizzle the mixture over the squash.

Step 3: Bake

Bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes. Serve immediately.
