Maple Roasted Delicata Squash

Squash is such a cozy food isn't it? Now that we've entered November nothing sounds better than coming home from a long day of work and filling my belly with something warm. Well, one day this little delicate squash was sitting on my kitchen counter just waiting for me to throw it in the oven. In just 15 minutes, I had a delicious side and I was oh so cozy. I paired this recipe with kale and walnuts. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Maple Roasted Delicata Squash

1 delicata squash
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
salt & pepper to taste
1/4 cup raisins (optional)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash squash and slice in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds. Slice each half into 1-inch segments. Mix squash, oil, syrup, cinnamon, salt and pepper in a bowl then scatter onto a baking sheet. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Top with raisins or dried cranberries.
