2 tbsp olive oil, divided

1 tsp garlic powder

Optional: 1/4 cup raisins or toasted sliced almonds (optional)



Method:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash the delicata squash and cut off the stem end, leaving 3-4 inches of stem attached.

Place the squash on a baking sheet, along with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Roast for 35-40 minutes for an average size squash or up to 2 hours for a very large squash.

Remove from oven, cool slightly, and scrape out the seeds from the roasted flesh by scooping it out with a spoon as shown in the jpeg above.

Place the roasted delicata squash into a mixing bowl and mash with a fork to desired consistency. Add additional olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste. Top with your favorite salad toppings and enjoy!
