These roasted delicata squash seeds are both crunchy & salty for a perfect appetizer or snack between meals.
Delicata squash is classified as a winter squash, with an oblong shape and striped pale yellow skin with green or orange stripes. It is in the same family of squash as zucchini, yellow summer squash, and acorn squash. It has thin, edible skin which makes it a top choice for roasting, cubing, or stuffing.

You can purchase delicata squash from most grocery stores and farmers markets from late summer through early winter, when it is in season.
Using this recipe is a great way to reduce food waste! Not to mention, these roasted delicata squash seeds taste just like popcorn, in my opinion, and contain a good amount of fiber, plant protein, calcium and magnesium.
