Description

Dilicata is a wonderful winter squash, delicious when roasted. This recipe includes two ways to prepare it. Suitable for Atkins, Keto, LCHF, low carb, diabetic, low glycemic, gluten free, grain free, sugar free, nut free, coconut free, low potassium, low sodium, CKD/Renal Diet.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Salted Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Walden Farms Pancake Syrup (See Notes)
  • ¼ teaspoons Coarse Ground Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoons Aleppo Pepper (Or Red Pepper Flakes To Taste)
  • 2  Small (about 6 Oz. Size) Delicata Squash

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425ºF, and line a small baking sheet with parchment.

In a small measuring cup, melt butter. Add syrup and both peppers (or pepper flakes), and stir. Set aside.

Cut stems off the squash and split in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and strands, then place the squash cut side up on the baking sheet.

Bake 40–45 minutes, or until edges of squash are beginning to char.

Carefully transfer the squash to a serving platter or to individual plates, being careful not to spill the sauce out of them. Garnish, as desired.

Time saver tip: The skin may be a little bit tougher with the microwave method, and will not get a char in the oven, but the squash is still delicious. To microwave, pierce each squash a couple of times with a fork. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Cut off the ends, split the squash lengthwise, and remove the seeds and strands. Place on baking sheet. Drizzle the butter sauce into the well of each squash. Bake 25 minutes at 425ºF.

Notes:
• Walden Farms Pancake Syrup is zero carbs and zero calories. If you substitute a different syrup, be sure to count the additional carbs.
• Nutrition estimates are based on My Fitness Pal’s online recipe analyzer. Brand names are included only to assure more accurate estimates.
