Roasted Delicata Squash with Kale
Ingredients
  • 1 medium delicata squash
  • 1 bunch kale or other dark leafy greens
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoon, divided olive oil
  •  salt and pepper
Instructions:
    1. Preheat oven to 425F. Scrub squash well. Slice off the ends and cut in half length-wise. Scoop out seeds (I use a melon-baller). Cut into half-moons or quarters no more than 1/2″ thick.
    2. Toss squash with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast at 425F for about 20-25 minutes, until uniformly tender and golden, turning after 10-15 minutes.
    3. While squash is roasting, rinse kale and remove stems. Chop roughly. Chop garlic clove.
    4. Heat additional tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium heat and add kale with a pinch of salt. Saute until dark green and wilted. Add garlic. Cook one more minute, then add two tablespoons of water. Stir briefly and remove from heat.
    5. Serve squash on top of garlicky greens, hot or at room temperature. Add salt and pepper to taste.
