{recipe} Move Over Onion Rings, We’ve Got Squash Rings

delicata squash rings

I love Delicata squash! The heirloom variety is mild, buttery and as gorgeous to look at as it is to taste.

I recently roasted scallop-edged rings of this thin-skinned winter squash. They are as fun to eat as onion rings and (believe it or not) just as delicious. And way healthier! The edible skin gets crispy during roasting, giving these finger food rings a little crunch that gives way to soft squash that I like to finish with nutty thyme browned butter, a squirt of lemon and sprinkle of parmesan.

Just writing about it makes my mouth water! If reading about it is doing the same for you, get my recipe at The Family Kitchen: Roasted Delicata Squash Rings with Thyme Browned Butter (can be shared with kids 6+ mos)*

Oh, and if you’re already starting to think about holiday vegetables, bookmark these. They’d make a lovely Thanksgiving (or Hanukkah or Christmas!) side.

*Note: Peels the skin off for children not yet eating finger foods.

    So glad, Melissa!! Did your Hungry Boy like them?! Too bad your little girl isn’t eating solids yet… the soup is a perfect thing to share with a beginner eater!

  4. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net
    will be much more useful than ever before.
