Easy Roasted Parmesan Delicata Squash

Easy Roasted Parmesan Delicata Squash is such a simple side dish and only 3 ingredients! This mild-flavored squash gets cooked to perfection with the most delicious crispy, cheesy crust.

Delicata squash is so delicious when roasted simply with parmesan cheese.

This squash has a very mild flavor, it’s my favorite of the winter squash varieties because of it’s delicious flavor. It’s also the only winter squash variety that doesn’t need to be peeled first. You can eat the outer skin!

Other winter squash varieties can have overpowering flavors or be quite bold in flavor, but not Delicata squash.

It’s simply sweet and buttery and oh so perfect when it gets roasted and all golden brown with melty, crispy parmesan.

Three real food ingredients is all that’s needed for this side dish.

This side dish is so simple to make.

All you need is some Delicata squash, healthy fat of choice, shredded parmesan cheese and a little bit of sea salt if you’d like to season it. That’s it!

All it takes is a little prep work slicing the Delicata squash and removing the inner seeds and any darker orange slimy membrane (just like how it looks inside a pumpkin).

Once you’ve got the squash slices prepped, mix them up with your healthy fat of choice, then spread them out in an even layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the parmesan all over the tops, then in the preheated oven they go to roast.

This Easy Roasted Parmesan Delicata Squash is perfect for any weeknight meal and fancy enough to be served to guests or served at the holiday table.

If you need to feed a lot of guests or if you plan on serving this at a holiday dinner, this recipe can easily be doubled or tripled, you’ll just need a couple extra baking sheets.

If you’ve never had Delicata squash before, give it a try! It’s truly one of the most special and delicious winter squashes available.

Easy Roasted Parmesan Delicata Squash is such a simple side dish and only 3 ingredients! This mild-flavored squash gets cooked to perfection with the most delicious crispy, cheesy crust.



Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Prep a large baking sheet with edges {like a jellyroll pan, I used a stoneware large bar pan} - line it with unbleached parchment paper. Set aside.

Wash and prep the Delicata squash, make sure to scrub off any dirt then dry them with a clean dish towel. With the squash lying flat on cutting board, cut off the ends of the Delicata squash and discard, then slice the squash into 1/4 inch thick slices. Remove and discard the inner seeds and any darker orange slimy membrane - you can do this with clean hands, a teaspoon or a pairing knife. Add the Delicata squash rings to a large mixing bowl, add the healthy fat of choice and optional sea salt, giving everything a stir until fully coated.

Dump the coated Delicata squash rings on the lined baking sheet, arranging in a uniform single layer. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the tops of the Delicata squash rings.

Bake at 425 degrees F for about 20-35 minutes until the Delicata squash rings are tender, light golden brown and the parmesan is crispy. Depending on your oven, this could take more or less time to bake. Keep an eye on the Delicata squash rings around 20 minutes to gauge how much more time your oven will need. Remove from the oven when done.

Serve immediately.

Hi Elena! ?? I’m not as familiar with Kabocha squash, although I’m guessing you could still cook it the same – the only difference is you might have to cook it a little longer. I hope you get to enjoy it. Take care.

I am so happy to have another recipe for delicata squash! It is my favorite squash to grow and eat. I love it because of the reasoned you mentioned, it’s mild flavor and it is so easy to prepare without having to peel.

Microwave cooking and nutrition

Are microwaves bad for your health? Almost every American house has a microwave. The convenience they offer is undeniable. However, despite the widespread use of microwave ovens and excellent safety recordings, some people suspect that cooking microwaved food makes it somewhat less healthy by removing foods from eating. Do you cook with microwave? Are microwave foods healthy?

How does microwave cooking work?

Understanding how microwave ovens work can help clarify the answers to these general questions. Microwave ovens cook food similar to radio waves but using shorter energy waves. These waves are highly selective, mainly affecting water and other electrically asymmetrical molecules - one end is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. Microwave ovens cause these molecules to vibrate and rapidly generate thermal (heat) energy.

Are microwaves safe to cook?

Some foods, when they are exposed to heat, from a microwave oven or a normal oven, are broken down. Vitamin C is perhaps the most clear example. However, since microwave cooking times are shorter, cooking with microwave does a better job of preserving vitamin C and other nutrients that are decomposed when heated.

When going to the vegetables, cooking in water takes some of the nutritional values ??because the nutrients flow into the cooking water. For example, boiled broccoli loses glycosinolate, a sulfur-containing compound that can give vegetables the ability to fight against cancer (and many find it distinctive and some find it disgusting). Steaming vegetables - even steaming microwave - is it better? In some ways, yes. For example, steamed broccoli holds more glucosinolate than boiled or fried broccoli.

Are microwaves bad for your health?

The method of cooking, which keeps the nutrients in the best way, is a method that quickly heats, warms food and uses as little liquid as possible. The microwave meets these criteria. Using the microwave with a small amount of water evaporates food from the inside out. It contains more vitamins and minerals than almost all other cooking methods and shows that microwave foods can be really healthy.

But let's not get lost in details. Vegetables are good for you in any way you prepare, and most of us don't eat enough. Is the microwave oven good or bad? Microwave is an engineering wonder, a miracle of convenience - and sometimes advantageous in feeding.
