Roasted Delicata Squash

By An Edible Mosaic

You can eat the skin of delicata squash! It's edible and tender when cooked.

Pro tip

Step 1

Trim both ends off each delicata squash. Cut each in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, and slice them into 1/4-inch thick half-circles.

Step 3

Roast the squash until its golden brown in spots on both sides, about 25 to 30 minutes, flipping once halfway through. See the recipe for directions on how to make rosemary brown butter and toasted hazelnuts.
