Roasted Delicata Squash with Srirachi Maple Glaze - a buttery, creamy squash heighted with the heat of srirachi and sweetness of maple
Grumpy and I have found a new squash to add to our favorites!  This was so good that between the two of us we ate almost every bite.  I hoarded a little to pack for lunch today and that’s exactly what I will do if Grumpy didn’t sneak in the fridge after I was sleeping to finish it off!
Roasted Delicata Squash with Srirachi Maple Glaze - a buttery, creamy squash heighted with the heat of srirachi and sweetness of maple
This squash is very reminicent of butternut squash however, you don’t have to peel it to eat it so its much easier to make!  Its creamy and buttery and sweet.  I decided to make a srirachi maple glaze to help caramelize and give it a little bit of a heat punch and amplify the sweetness of the squash.   I will definitely not pass over this squash in the store again!
