Delicata Squash with Sage Butter

Ashland Food Co-op

Ingredients:

  • 2 Delicata Squash (about 2 lbs) seeds removed and cut into 1/2-inch rounds (leave the peels on because they are chewy and delicious when roasted)
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 5/6 sage leaves, very thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp pomegranate arils
  • 1/4 c dry uncooked quinoa (optional for a crunchy addition)
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet (or 2, if needed) with parchment paper. Place the squash in a large bowl and drizzle it with the olive oil. Sprinkle squash with nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Roast for about 35-45 minutes, flipping the squash halfway through while baking, until golden brown and caramely. While the squash is roasting, rinse the quinoa- if using (in a fine mesh strainer). Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and add the quinoa in with a bit of water. Cook, stirring and tossing often, until the quinoa becomes fragrant and pops (about 5-6 minutes). If you're using white quinoa you'll want it to turn golden. Place the butter in another skillet over low-medium heat. Once the butter begins to bubble, add the sliced sage and continue stirring and cooking for another minute or two, until butter has a light brown color and a rich and nutty aroma. Remove the butter from the heat immediately and pour into a bowl. As soon as the squash is finished roasting, drizzle it with the sage butter and top with pomegranate arils and the toasted crunchy quinoa. Serve!
