Delicata Squash: Autumn's Best Kept Secret

Alright, folks, as autumn rolls in with its pumpkin mania, I’m pulling back the curtain on one of nature's underrated stars: the Delicata Squash. It’s delicious and easy to cook, and let me drop a fun tidbit on you: squash is technically a fruit, not a veggie!. Mind blown, right? I mean, who puts fruit in their salad or serves it as a side with steak? We do, apparently.

Delicata: The Backstory

Delicata Squash, with its sweet and creamy profile, is not just any regular fruit (it still feels weird saying that). It’s part of the Cucurbitaceae family, which boasts a range of members from pumpkins to cucumbers. Delicata, however, is like that cool cousin who traveled the world and came back with intriguing stories – it's got character.

A Mediterranean Twist

To accentuate Delicata's natural goodness, I suggest bringing in a touch from another part of the world: the Urban Accent Veggie Roaster Mediterranean Parmesan Mix. It’s like taking a trip to the sunny coasts of Greece without leaving your kitchen.

Getting Down to Business

Here's how you bring the world to your plate: Clean up your squash, trim its ends, slice, scoop, and lay those half-moons on a baking sheet. A drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of that Mediterranean goodness, and into the oven it goes. In 20 minutes, you'll savor a mouthful of autumn with a dash of Mediterranean summer.
 

Short on Time? We Got You.

Days get hectic, and sometimes, you just don’t have the time to embark on culinary adventures. No worries. Drop by Top of the Hill, grab our prepped Delicata dish, and all you have to do is heat and eat.

So, this autumn, challenge the norms. Dive into the delightful world of Delicata Squash, the fruit (yup, fruit) that's here to shake up your dinner table. And the next time someone debates pumpkin vs. Delicata, you’ve got a fun fact up your sleeve. Cheers!
