One of my favorite things about fall is the variety of squash to play with, my current favorite is Delicata, they are so easy to prepare and so delicious. I wanted to share this simple recipe that is perfect as a side or on its own.
This serves 2 people so just adjust the amounts for your needs
- Delicata Squash
- Olive Oil
- Salt & pepper
- Crushed Red Pepper
- Maple Syrup
- Flat Parsley
- Goats Cheese
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and cover a baking tray with foil.
Grab your Squash and cut the ends off, then cut in half down the middle. Scoop all the seeds and guts out and throw away.
Slice the two halves into slices at whatever thickness you desire. They look like cute little half circles.
Throw this into a bowl and splash enough olive oil to coat and sprinkle with salt, pepper and red pepper to taste.
Throw these onto your baking tray and put them in the oven for 20 mins, after 20 mins take them out and shake them around a bit then squeeze half the lemon over them and give them another shake to coat before throwing them back in the oven for another 15 minutes. Take them out again and drizzle them with a little maple syrup then back in the oven for another 7 minutes to caramelize a little.
They should be slightly crisp but still soft. Put your arugula in a bowl, roughly chop the flat lead parsley and add in, squeeze the other lemon half over this then add in the roasted squash whilst still warm and top with crumbled goats cheese.
