Delicata squash is sometimes hard to find; shop local and early. You will need one (or two, if you opt to only use this edible-skin squash) for our favorite roasted squash.

Tasters tip: don’t substitute. The flavor and texture of delicata squash can’t be beat. Plus, when roasted and carmelized it’s the only squash that we know of that is edible.

Delicata squash is a flavorful addition to any Thanksgiving spread (especially candied!) We use both acorn and delicata squash in our recipe but it would be just as delicious with only one kind of squash.

Yields8 Servings
Prep Time20 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time1 hr

 1 Medium acorn squash
 1 Small-medium delicata squash
 4 tbsp Golden Lakanto Monkfruit sweetener
 4 tbsp Salted butter
 1 cup Chopped pecans, fine

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2

Peel acorn squash, and cut in half to open and clean insides of both acorn and delicata squash.

3

Turn halves down on cutting board. Slice squash in 1/2” slivers.

4

Melt and brown butter in the oven in a large glass baking dish (big enough to lay all squash pieces fanned and allow for turning to coat.)

5

Sprinkle pecans and sweetener in browned butter and toast for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to evenly coat pecans.

6

Place acorn squash in the pan in a single layer. Leave room for delicata. Bake acorn squash for 10 minutes, turning once to coat during baking.

7

Add single layer of delicata squash to the pan. Continue baking for 20 minutes, carefully turning a few times to coat during baking.
