Roasted Salt & Pepper Delicata Squash
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Sides
Serves: 3-4 sides
  • 1 medium delicata squash
  • ½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt (add more or less, to taste)
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (add more or less, to taste)
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Wash the squash, then slice off the stem, and cut the squash in half, length-wise. Do not remove the skin. Remove and discard the seeds (or you can save them and roast them for a snack!). Slice squash into half-moon shapes, about ½ inch thick.
  3. Spread your squash out on a large baking sheet. Add the oil, salt & pepper, and mix well, with your hands, until every half-moon is covered.
  4. Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking time, or until the squash has browned and you can easily pierce it with a fork or knife.
  5. Serve hot!
