This recipe could be called “Glazed Squash” or “Delicata C’s”. Both are accurate descriptions. I love a delicata squash for a few reasons. 1) It’s the perfect size for 2-5 people (as a side dish). 2) As the name implies, the rind is delicate, thin—making it far easier to cut with a knife when it’s raw than other squash, some of which almost require an axe and a chisel to cut them. 3) It cooks much faster than any other squash. Here is my recipe for a fast and easy side dish; let’s call it “Glazed C’s”.
- 1 delicata squash
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 and 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Mix the olive oil, brown sugar, and salt in a bowl. Cut the squash in half and scrape out the seeds. Tip: Use a serrated grapefruit spoon to make fast and easy work of this task.
