Thursday Dinner: Black Beans and Rice With Roasted Delicata Squash
What to prep: De-seed and cut up delicata squash, store in glass container
If you've never had delicata squash, get your hands on some immediately. I found these at Trader Joe's, but I'm sure any grocery store will have them — just look by the other squashes. It's sweeter than butternut and very similar to sweet potato. And you can eat the skin!
I halve two delicatas, then cut them into little half moons. So on Thursday night, I just roast them for 35 to 40 minutes on a pan with a little olive oil and salt, flipping them halfway. While they're roasting, I cook up some rice and serve this squash with black beans and rice. Or sometimes we make them into burritos. Simple and delicious.
