If I had to choose my favorite squash, it definitely would be the sweet, nutty Delicata. Every time September rolls around, I am thrilled at the sight of this little guy’s reappearance at the farmer’s market.
This is a vegetable that doesn’t need any fancy preparation – I most often eat it simply sprinkled with some fresh herbs and cinnamon.
Cinnamon-Sage Baked Delicata Squash
2 delicata squash, halved, seeded, and sliced 1/4″ thick
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon fresh sage, minced
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Combine the squash slices, coconut oil, sage, and sea salt in a baking dish. When the oven comes to temperature, cook for 45 minutes, stirring twice throughout the cooking time. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with cinnamon and serve. Serves 3-4.
