Roasted Delicata Squash & Onions

From Eating Well:  November/December 2010Roasting intensifies delicata squash’s flavor. Seasoned with rosemary and maple, this recipe’s great with pork or turkey.

Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

  • 2 pounds delicata squash (about 2 large)
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Preheat oven to 425°F. Cut squash in half lengthwise, then crosswise; scoop out the seeds. Cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick wedges. Toss with onion, 1 tablespoon oil and salt in a large bowl. Spread in an even layer on a baking sheet. Roast, stirring once or twice, until tender and beginning to brown, about 30 minutes. Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, rosemary, syrup and mustard in a small bowl. Toss the vegetables with the dressing.
