Oven Roasted Delicata Squash with Cranberries & Thyme
Oven roasting squash is one of the easiest ways to bring out the nutty flavor and sweetness of winter squash by creating caramelization while maintaining a moist and tender texture. You can substitute the Delicata squash with your favorite winter squash or sweet potatoes, but we chose the Delicata because it is so cute, and the skin is tender enough to eat so it saves time not having to peel it. This dish can be made with unflavored extra virgin olive oil and a traditional balsamic vinegar of course but layering in flavored olive oils and vinegars can add a whole other dimension of flavor and be a fun and seasonal way to add nuances to even the simplest dishes. Here we use our vegan, organic butter flavored olive oil and cinnamon pear dark balsamic to add richness and warmth for the fall.

In about 20 minutes your sprouts will be caramelized and tender with crisped edges, shallots, and studded with flecks of pancetta and crunchy pecans. A drizzle of our maple balsamic sends the flavors over the top with the perfect balance of salty and sweet.
