Garlic Parmesan Baked Delicata Squash Wedges

If you haven’t tried a delicata squash before, then you’re missing out on one of the most flavorful varieties of winter squash. At first sight, you may wonder how to cook this elongated squash, but preparing it is a breeze. The skin is tender enough to eat after cooking and removing the seeds from the inside takes a few seconds with a spoon.

The delicata squash is also loaded with nutrients, including potassium, Vitamins C and A, and it’s high in fiber. If you’re looking for an alternative side dish to French fries, then you need to try this recipe.

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 425F.
  2. Remove and discard stem. Slice squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out and discard seeds.
  3. Cut halves crosswise into 1/2 inch thick slices.
  4. In a bowl, toss squash slices with olive oil, minced garlic, parmesan, salt and pepper.
  5. Place on an oiled baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes until golden brown, flipping squash half-way through.
  6. Serve immediately and enjoy!
