Winter Squash Au Naturel Recipe


Makes 4 Servings

This Is Vegan.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pounds winter squash (acorn, butternut, or delicata)


  1. Adjust the oven rack to the center position and preheat the oven to 400°f
  2. Line a baking tray with foil, and pour on the olive oil
  3. Use your fingers to distribute the oil so that it coats the area where you’ll put the squash
  4. Cut the squash in half lengthwise, and scrape out the seeds
  5. If the squash is very large, cut each half in half again, crosswise this time
  6. Place the squash, cut side down, on the olive oil coating
  7. Put the tray in the oven, and roast the squash until it is tender enough to easily insert a fork or a sharp knife into the flesh: 15 to 20 minutes for delicata, 35 to 40 minutes for acorn or butternut
  8. Remove the tray from the oven, and let the squash pieces rest for about 10 minutes before turning them over
  9. Serve hot or warm, in the skin, with forks for mashing and/or spoons for scooping
