Also known as Bohemian squash or sweet potato squash, delicata has a rich yellow flesh and a buttery, sweet-corn like taste. The skin is edible and delicious as well. Low in calories and high in fiber, delicata is a good source of vitamin A. There are so many ways you could flavor this squash. Below are a few of my simple favorites.


You will need

2 delicata squash, about 1 lbs. each

Nonstick cooking spray, olive oil


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Wash the squash thoroughly. Cut the hard ends off each squash, and cut them in half.

Using a spoon, scoop out the seeds and strings. Cut each half into 3 or 4 wedges.

Place the squash wedges skin down on a cookie sheet. Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle on your seasonings.


For sweet squash

2 teaspoons brown sugar

1 -2 teaspoon cinnamon


For savory squash

2 teaspoons brown sugar

2 teaspoons chili powder


For spicy squash


Cayenne, to taste

Ketchup, for dipping
