How to cook delicata squash:

Delicata squash is a delicious and surprisingly easy-to-prepare winter squash. It is also versatile and can be cooked in many different ways. One of the simplest methods is to roast in the oven until tender and golden brown like done in this recipe. Another great way to prepare delicata squash is to use it in a soup or stew. It pairs especially well with other winter vegetables like carrots, potatoes, and kale. Just chop the squash into small pieces and add it to the pot along with the other ingredients. Let everything simmer until the squash is cooked through. There is also no need to peel the skin, as it will soften during cooking.
