Updated: Feb 21
*WEIGHT LOSS* The perfect balance of savory and sweet, and fuss-free because you don’t have to peel the skin of the Delicate squash, so it’s pretty easy to prepare. Roasting Delicata brings out the flavor which makes a great Fall side dish with just about everything from chicken, to roasts and chops.
Total Time: under 30 minutes
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
2 delicata squash, about 14 oz each, washed and dried
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
fresh black pepper, to taste
chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish
Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly spray 2 large nonstick baking sheets with oil.
Slice the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Slice the seeded halves into 1/4-inch thick slices (half circles) and place them in a large bowl.
Drizzle the olive oil, salt, turmeric, garlic powder and black pepper, tossing toss well to coat. Lay flat on the prepared baking sheets and bake in the center of the oven until golden brown, about 10 to 14 minutes on each side. Remove from oven and top with fresh cilantro and eat right away.
