Recipe by Jentry Lee Hull

 

Ingredients

  • 1 delicata squash, halved, seeded, sliced into half-moons (¼ inch thick)

  • In a large bowl toss squash, onion, oil, and seasoning until evenly coated.
  • Transfer onto lined baking sheet and spread into an even layer.
  • Roast for 25-30 minutes at 425°F, or until golden brown and caramelized, turning halfway through.

Notes

  • For extra sweetness, add 1 Tbsp. of balsamic vinegar.
  • This recipe can easily be doubled and is great to have throughout the week.
