Roasted Delicata Squash with Apples & Sage

This roasted delicata squash recipe is perfect for Thanksgiving! See the notes for a make-ahead option, or serve it straight out of the oven.


Ingredients


2 delicata squash, halved lengthwise and seeded, cut into ½-inch pieces


½ cup pearl onions, sliced in half


Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling


2 tablespoons pepitas and/or pine nuts


2 cups torn lacinato kale (2 to 3 leaves)


6 sage leaves, chopped


Leaves from 3 thyme sprigs


1 small gala apple, diced


Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Dressing:


2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar


½ garlic clove, minced


¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard


⅛ teaspoon maple syrup


sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Directions


Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Place the squash and onions on the baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and generous pinches of salt and pepper. Toss to coat and arrange on the sheet so that they’re not touching. Roast until the squash is golden brown on all sides and until the onions are soft and browned, 25 to 30 minutes.


Make the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, garlic, mustard, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.


In a small pan over medium-low heat, toss the pepitas with a pinch of salt and cook until toasted, stirring frequently, for about 2 minutes. Set aside.


In a medium mixing bowl, combine the kale, sage, and thyme. Add the warm roasted squash and onions, the apples, half the pepitas, and half the dressing. Toss to coat. Transfer to an oven-safe serving dish. (If you’re making this dish in advance stop here and follow the saving/reheating instructions in the notes below).


Place the serving dish into the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the apples and kale are warm and the kale is just wilted. Just before serving, drizzle with the remaining dressing, and top with the remaining pepitas.


Make-ahead instructions:


Once the roasted vegetables are transferred to the serving dish, cool to room temp. Cover with foil and chill the dish until ready to reheat (Ideally, make this around 4 hours in advance). When ready to reheat, preheat the oven to 425°. Loosen the foil and bake, very loosely covered for 12 to 15 minutes or until everything is heated through. Just before serving, drizzle with the remaining dressing, and top with the remaining pepitas.
