Instructions

ROASTED DELICATA SQUASH IN THE OVEN:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line or lightly coat a large baking sheet with parchment paper (foil) or cooking spray.

For round rings:

  1. Trim the ends and slice the squash into rings. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon.

For half circles:

  1. Trim the ends and slice the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Slice the seeded halves into 1/4-inch thick slices (half circles) and place.
  2. Lay the squash onto the baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Use your hands to toss well to coat.
  3. Spread the squash out on the baking sheet into a single layer.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes then flip and return to oven until tender and golden brown, about 12-15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and serve hot.

HOW TO MAKE DELICATA IN THE AIR FRYER:

  1. Place the squash in a single layer in the air fryer basked.

    Air fry at 400F for 12 minutes, shaking half-way through.

    Repeat with any remaining squash.
