Surprise! Unfamiliar Winter Produce You Need to Be Eating

Delicata Squash  

There are so many scrumptious squash selections to choose from, including butternut, acorn and spaghetti squash. One of my favorites is a less popular pick: Delicata Squash. Named for its delicate, edible skin, the vegetable features a natural sweetness, which allows it to be used in a myriad of ways, from pureeing it into a soup to making it into Squash Mac and Cheese . You can even use it in breakfast and dessert-type dishes by roasting the velvety flesh (it caramelizes beautifully in the oven with some cinnamon) and serving with a dollop of Greek yogurt and your favorite granola. This super squash is high in beta-carotene, which acts an antioxidant to help fight inflammation in your body, as well as immune-boosting vitamin C. One delightful date with delicata and trust me, you’ll be hooked.
