Let’s talk about… SQUASH! Personally, I’m a huge fan of squash all year round. Spaghetti squash with homemade sauce, zucchini squash boats stuffed with taco filling, creamy butternut squash soup… you name it and I’ll eat it! Of all the different kinds of squash each season, my favorite by far is delicata squash (and not because of the fun zebra striped skin!)
Delicata squash, also known as sweet potato squash, is a winter squash commonly known for its creamy texture and sweet taste. It’s also one of the easiest squash to prepare and cook, with zero peeling necessary and short cook times in either the oven, microwave or on the stovetop. Not only delicious, delicata squash is a good source of dietary fiber and potassium, and also provides small amounts of magnesium, manganese, vitamins C and B.
