Delicata Squash Chips

Delicata squash chips are one of my favorite squash recipes. Delicata means delicate. This squash is delicate in taste though it has a hard skin. One must be careful when cutting since its skin is as tough as a pumpkin. However, I find it easy to cut since they are small and weight under a pound. This yellow and green strip oblong shape squash is a treat.

Like with all recipes here, they are gluten-free, healthy and delicious!

One squash will easily serve two people.

Delicata Squash Chips

by Margarita Persico

Ingredients:

  • 1 Delicata squash (wash and slice in half circles)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil (for brushing squash)
  • Salt and ground pepper to taste

Tools:

  • Sharpe Knife
  • Cutting board
  • Food brush
  • Baking tray

Instructions:

  • Carefully wash and cut Delicata Squash in half, and then in half again to cut into half-moons (see photo).
  • Spoon out all the seeds (might want to reserve and make your pumpkin seed treats). Cut into half moons.
  • On a clean oven tray with a food brush, brush each slice with olive oil and place on pan. Broil for around 8 minutes on each side.

Note: The time may vary depending on the oven. Keep an eye on the Delicate Squash while broiling in the oven–you don’t want them to burn. Approximately 10-16 minutes later they are ready to eat.

  • Turn off oven and take out of the oven.
  • Before serving sprinkle with sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.
