We did Thanksgiving last weekend. My husband and number one taste tester is currently in India on a business trip. Not wanting him to miss out on family time, or all the joys of a tummy filling Thanksgiving meal, we invited friends over, roasted a turkey and filled our table with all sorts of delectable eats, but this miso roasted delicata squash? Well, let’s just say I kept eating it. And eating it. And eating it.

I love most winter squashes, but some, such as butternut, take a lot of work to prepare. With everything else that needed to be done for turkey day, I wanted something quick. Delicata squash doesn’t have to be peeled, its thin skin is completely edible and by slicing it, roasting takes 30 minutes instead of forever. 

After a quick roast, I gently toss the slices into a miso butter mixture that has a touch of honey and rice wine vinegar stirred in. They go back into the oven for a few more minutes so the flavors can infuse and in no time at all Miso Roasted Delicata Squash is starring right alongside your turkey.
