A super simple vegetarian side dish perfect with any meal! Delicata squash is roasted with dill, parmesan, and garlic, then spritzed with fresh lemon juice. Easy, tasty, and naturally gluten-free.


  • 2 delicata squash (medium in size), washed & dried, halved lengthwise, seeds removed
  • roughly 2 tablespoons olive oil (just enough to coat the squash)
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • salt & pepper to preference
  • roughly 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped 
  • Parmigiano Reggiano to preference 


  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Slice the prepared squash into half circles, about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. On the baking sheet, toss the squash with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  4. Spread the coated squash slices in a single layer on the baking sheet and sprinkle with fresh dill.
  5. With a microplane grater, grate Parmigiano Reggiano over top of the squash until you feel like you have honored and respected the squash with a good sprinkling of cheese. : )
  6. Place in the oven for about 25 minutes until the squash slices have softened and the edges have become beautifully golden.
  7. Squeeze some fresh lemon over top to give the squash a quick zip of acidic brightness (don’t skip this step). Sprinkle another round of Parmigiano and fresh dill on top if you prefer (<– which you do).
  8. Serve!
