Description

Delicata Squash is a great fall appetizer, these are bursting with flavor and make the perfect snack or side dish.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 large delicata squash, typically 1-1.5lbs each
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced or zested with microplane
  • 2 Tablespoons pomegranate molasses
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons Aleppo pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper.
  2. Wash your delicata squash and trim the top. 
  3. Begin cutting rings about 1" thick. Once cut, using a butter knife, scrape any seeds away from the centers. Place in a large bowl.
    • 2 large delicata squash, typically 1-1.5lbs each
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together your marinade ingredients then pour over your squash rings to coat entirely.
    • 4 cloves of garlic, minced or zested with microplane
    • 2 Tablespoons pomegranate molasses
    • 2 Tablespoons honey
    • 2 teaspoons Aleppo pepper
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon allspice
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt*
  5. Place your rings on your prepared sheet pan and bake for 15 minutes. Flip then bake for another 15 minutes. Brush any remaining marinade on the rings.
  6. Remove from tray, serve and enjoy! 

Notes

  • Pomegranate Molasses - If you don't have pomegranate molasses on hand, you can sub balsamic vinegar + 1 teaspoon of sugar in its place.
  • Aleppo Pepper - You can find Aleppo pepper at any Middle Eastern grocer or online. If you don't have, a bit of smoked paprika would be a good replacement. You can also add a quarter the amount of cayenne in its place.
  • Delicata Squash - If you can't find delicata squash, I would sub with butternut or acorn squash. Those squashes are much denser and require full removal of the skin. You can cut into 1" cubes or strips once the skin is remove and proceed in the same way.
  • Salt: If using table salt, cut amount in half
