Roasted Delicata Squash

Looking for an easy, delicious and healthy snack that kids and adults will devour this season?  Try making these delicata squash roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper. When roasted on high temperature the delicata squash gets all soft with crispy edges, and the best part is that the skin and flesh all of it can be eaten!  Sweet, soft, salty, crunchy, these squash “chips” are outstanding. My kids finished this plate out in just seconds! This recipe can easily be made sweet with a drizzle of olive oil and maple syrup, but in our family we like more savories hence this savory roasted delicata squash.

This roasted delicata squash recipe is one that my friend Iya has been making for herself as a meal-prep item in her daily lunch box this fall and has been telling me all season long how delicious they are.  I finally got around to trying it myself and completely agree with her!  Seriously folks, this is so good and so easy to make that it will become your family’s new go-to squash recipe this season.  Give it a try!
