Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time40 mins
Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: American, Italian
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 3 Squash: Delicata or Acorn
  • 3 tbsp honey plus a little extra for drizzling
  • 3 tbsp olive oil plus a little extra for drizzling
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 oz burrata

Dukkah

  • 3/4 c pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 c sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 2 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Cut the squash in half, and scrape out the seeds with a spoon. Cut each squash into 4-6 wedges. In a large bowl toss the squash pieces with the olive oil, honey, salt, and pepper then arrange them cut side up on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast for 30 to 40 minutes, until golden brown, caramelized and tender. Lower the oven temperature to 350.
  • To make the dukkah toast all of the seeds and spices on a sheet tray for five minutes at 350 then transfer to a food processor or blender and pulse 2-3 times just to break up the larger pieces and release the flavor of the spices. The dukkah should remain fairly coarse.
  • Arrange the roasted squash on a platter. Drizzle with olive oil and a little bit of honey then sprinkle generously with the dukkah. Tear the burrata and place it around the squash. Enjoy immediately!
