Serves: 8
  • 3 delicata squash
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • *for the vinaigrette*
  • 4 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 425F, and line a baking sheet with parchment. Set aside.
  2. Rinse and scrub the delicata squash well. Cut off the tops and bottoms, and cut in half length-wise. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds, then cut the squash into slices.
  3. Place the squash in a large bowl, and drizzle in the olive oil, maple, and salt/pepper. Toss to coat.
  4. Lay in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, and cook 15-20 min. Squash should have a golden brown crust and be easily pierced with a fork.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the dressing.
  6. When ready to serve, arrange squash on a serving dish and drizzle with the vinaigrette. Enjoy!
