Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like you to meet my favorite way to eat squash! This sweet and spicy roasted delicata squash is flavored with fresh rosemary, a pinch of cayenne pepper, and brown sugar. Finish with a handful of pretty pomegranate seeds and some extra herbs right before serving!
My friends, if you’ve been looking for a simple, lovely, and totally delicious way to up your side dish game —> THIS IS IT. This sweet and spicy roasted delicata squash is beyond simple to assemble (we’re talking 5 minutes of prep!) and will fill your home with the most wonderful aroma (brown sugar + rosemary = swoon) as it roasts away in your oven. Sounds pretty great, right?
The first thing you’ll need to get your squash on is … SQAUSH. Duh! 😉
Aren’t they preeeeetty?
Now you’re going to toss the squash wedges with some fresh rosemary, salt, cayenne pepper, brown sugar, and oil. I like using olive oil here, but have done it with coconut oil, too. Both roads lead to yummy.
Now spread those pretties out onto a baking sheet…
And DAS IT! All you need to do once the squash emerges from the oven is toss it in the little extra oil/rosemary/salt if desired, and top with pomegranate seeds. The seeds add a bright crunch and an extra pop of pretty to the final dish 😉 Important stuff!
What will you serve it with? xo
