Delicata Squash with Lime Butter by Miranda


Original recipe makes 4 servings 2 delicata squash, halved and seeded 3 tablespoons butter, softened 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice 1 teaspoon chili powder, or to taste 1/2 teaspoon lime zest (optional) salt and ground black pepper to taste


The original recipe says:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place the squash cut side down into a baking dish. Pour water into the dish to about 1/4 inch deep.

Alternately and easier, poke holes in whole squash with a fork or skewer and place on a cookie sheet. Bake until a fork or skewer easily pierces the squash. Any winter squash can be cooked this way.

Bake in preheated oven until the squash pierces easily with a fork, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, blend the butter with the lime juice and chili powder in a small bowl. Mix in the lime zest, if desired. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon the butter mixture into the cooked squash, and serve immediately.
