In my October Seasonal Nutrition post for Kitchenthusiast, the KitchenAid® blog, I shared my recipe for Rosemary Roasted Delicata Squash. Last fall, I cooked with delicata squash for the first time and fell in love. I adore the color, the sweet flavor and smooth texture. I especially like that it’s one of the easiest winter squashes to prepare. It’s easy -ish to cut into and you can actually eat the skin.

Roasting brings out the sweet flavor and frees up the squash to be served as “fries” or sliced to enjoy over a salad or as a quick side dish. You can also puree the delicata squash into for a silky smooth, slightly sweet soup. I’m a little lazy in the kitchen these days so roasting is my prep of choice,

I originally posted this Rosemary Roasted Delicata Squash recipe over on the KitchenAid blog along with everything you want to know about the health and nutrition benefits of delicata squash. If you try this or any of my recipes, I’d love to see it. Tag me on Twitter or Instagram and let’s chat!

      Thanks Katie! I made this recipe a couple months ago but usually find Delicata squash at Publix or Whole Foods pretty easily. I love the delicata because it's easiest to handle but you can apply the recipe to butternut or acorn squash too. Reply
