Roasted & Stuffed Delicata Squash
Squash: You love to eat, but you don’t love to peel it. Squash skin is so tough you have to bake it before handling. Even then, it’s better to simply scoop out the creamy innards to make soups, pies and casseroles. Delicata squash is different. The skin is so soft and tender, you can slice straight through – no greased-up knife, needed. That means when you go to make this roasted and stuffed delicata squash with forbidden rice and buttery coconut oil, you can eat the whole kit and caboodle. What’s not to love?
