This simple recipe is the easiest way to get your family to not only eat their veggies, but LOVE thier veggies. Delicata squash is that funny little green and yellow striped vegetable you see every fall.
Just slice it lengthewise, seed it and slice into half moons. The skin becomes cripsy and the inside becomes sweet and tender. Throw on a sheet pan with cauliflower and broccoli florets, coat with olive oil and a few warm spices and roast for 30 minutes.
Be sure to use a rimmed sheet pan and parchment paper for super easy clean up.
Be sure to have a very sharp knife when slicing the squash- it’s a tough little devil.
