Roasted Delicata Squash with Thyme

Delicata is similar to acorn squash, in that its peel is tender enough to eat after roasting. This recipe is deceptively simples—yet the ample amount of thyme really sets off the earthy notes of the squash in a beautiful way.

Ingredients

  • 3 delicata squash
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, minced
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Trim both ends from each squash. Using a long, thin knife, scrape seeds from the cavity. Cut squash into ½-inch-thick rings, discarding any stray seeds. Combine squash, oil, thyme, salt and pepper in a large bowl, tossing to coat thoroughly. Spread squash in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with any oil mixture left behind in the bowl. Roast 20-25 minutes, or until tender, turning halfway through.

Take that name to mean anything you please … whether you make this soup out of chicken stock, turkey stock or vegetable stock, you can bet it’ll be scrumptious. What elevates this above a standard chicken (turkey … veggie) noodle soup are the copious amounts of carrots and celery, the beefy lentils, and the fun little topping of sauteed root veggies and sausage. PS – you can make this vegetarian and still have a super hearty soup.
