How to Make Crispy Delicata Squash

My method on how to make crispy squash will soon become a “baked moons of deliciousness” obsession, and you’ll be adding them to every salad!

The little moons are baked in the oven until crispy, then paired with Roquefort and drizzled with a honey vinaigrette. This method for making crispy squash is sure to impress.


Delicata squash Olive oil Smoked paprika Garlic powder Red pepper flakes Kosher salt Rosemary

Preheat your oven to 425°F.

Wash the squash under warm water and dry thoroughly with paper towels.

On a large cutting board, cut the ends off each squash, then cut each right down the middle lengthwise.

In a large bowl, whisk olive oil together with some smoked paprika, crushed red pepper flakes, garlic powder, and Kosher salt.

In a separate shallow bowl or pie plate, grate about a cup of Parmesan cheese from a block.

Bake the squash in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
