A deliciously different squash recipe. Delicata squash is baked until tender, then topped with a lime flavoured butter. Serve as a wonderful side dish with any meal.
Delicata squash are also known as bohemian squash. If unavailable, substitute in butternut squash or sweet potatoes.
I give this five stars because it is the best combination of ingredients I have tried for Delicata squash. This is NOT the kind of vegetable that tastes good mashed up with vanilla, cream and cinnamon like pumpkin or sweet potato - (believe me, I tried cooking many ways this morning)The lime and spice bring out the flavor the best. You can add a dash of cayenne if you like. Had to upload my picture after cooking - Thanks! P.S. The SEEDS are great too. I rinsed and dried them, then baked at 275 for about 30 min. Next, heat up a tsp or less of olive oil in a pan and add lime juice, salt, chili and cayenne pepper to taste. Mix in your seeds and cook for a minute or less. Spread on paper towel and allow to dry before storing. - 04 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was very good! I cooked it in the crock pot on low for 1-1/2 hours, but didn't change anything else. Hubby works from home and can turn the crock pot on when needed, so I use the crock whenever I can. - 26 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
