Roasted Delicata Squash Wedges

Also known as Bohemian squash or sweet potato squash, delicata has a rich yellow flesh and a buttery, sweet-corn like taste. The skin is edible and delicious as well. Low in calories and high in fiber, delicata is a good source of vitamin A. There are so many ways you could flavor this squash. Below are a few of my simple favorites.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Wash the squash thoroughly. Cut the hard ends off each squash, and cut them in half.
  3. Using a spoon, scoop out the seeds and strings. Cut each half into 3 or 4 wedges.
  4. Place the squash wedges skin down on a cookie sheet. Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle on your seasonings.
  5. Roast in the oven for 40 minutes.

DELICIOUS! Super easy, great week night healthy side dish. I did peel the skin as the reviews suggested, sprayed with butter flavored Pam, and sprinkled both sides of the squash (since I peeled it) with the brown sugar spice (I made both sweet and savory, both were awesome)mixture. I can't wait to make this again!!

Great recipe. I made the spicy version and the flavor and texture was very much like french fries. I was worried the skin would be too tough, so I scored the skin cross-wise and drizzled olive oil in the bottom of the sheet to soften it up a bit. Worked out well.

Made for thanksgiving. Did with brown sugar, cayenne and salt. Was heavy handed with the cayanne and had to warn the guests. Really nice.
